The petition is here. The preamble:
We are a group of high school and college professors from Quebec. We write to you today because we need the support of teachers everywhere.
As you know, students in Quebec have been on strike for the past four months to reject a government-mandated increase in university tuition fees – a 75% hike over the next five years. On May 18, the government of Jean Charest, the Quebec Premier, passed an emergency law (known as « Law 12″, previously known as Bill 78) which severely restricts students’ fundamental rights, such as the right to demonstrate and the right to strike.This law forces us to teach in an environment which does not recognize our students’ right to protest.
