Jerome Raza has been a student activist and organizer since 2004. After a year on the board of his local student union, he joined the executive board of ASSÉ on the eve of the 2005 general student strike against massive cuts to student financial aid. As the student strike coalition, CASSÉÉ, was formed, he was delegated to sit the its negociations committee that was mandated to present the strike movement's demands to the governement. After leaving official capacity in 2006, he joined the Montreal NEFAC collective which later became part of UCL. Since February he has been active in supporting the student mobilisation through various organizing roles, as well as being involved in his neighborhood's autonomous popular assembly borne out of the spontaneous pots & pans movement.
