ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the struggle of French-speaking people of Quebec for their independence. Vast numbers of French Canadians--Quebec is more than 80 percent French-speaking--passionately believe that they can never exercise their birth-right unless Quebec becomes a nation independent of the rest of Canada. Although only a minority of Quebecers support full independence, the vigorous separatist movement in Quebec attracts the young and the intellectual, who realize that revolutions are usually fought by a minority that needs only passive consent from the masses.
