I watched Mick Jagger blowing kisses to Mitt Romney on SNL via Youtube. I didn't see the whole show so I missed The Arcade Fire, but funeral was a pretty good album.

More on topic. I have been reading and watching about it a little, but I am really more concerned with what is going on here. Massive protests and riots are going to happen here all you have to do to know is watch the governments actions. NDAA - imprison citizens without trial, couple months later no protesting around Obama, reported few days ago Congress is ramming through a bill legalizing propaganda.

It's obvious.

Translation of the speech from the student leader Gabriel


we were never scared of Police repression. It will not start today with this bill there. The protests will continue. [...] It is not impossible to call to disobey this law, "said Nadeau-Dubois Friday

Anyone saw Arcade Fire on SNL with Mike Jagger ?
maybe you have noticed a red square on their shirt

The red squares means you support the students with the protest



Saw the episode.. it was awesome and they were really good, but I had no idea what that meant.

thanks for the info.

I wonder how long it will take for this to spill over into other major cities? I really like the Quebecer's commitment to this cause. It can only help to accelerate the taking back of our government in this colony, our freedoms and our rights. As more police abuse continues, there will be martyrs which is sad and unfortunate but that will hopefully produce centralization and focus on the problems and corruption within our government and "higher" educational system that have existed for so long.

Personally, I don't advocate violence, I would prefer to see every Canadian STOP PAYING TAXES INDEFINITELY and bring the government down so they are forced to do what people want, rather than corporations and international banksters. The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

Viva la Resistance!

Cheers - Dave

This really need to go at the front pages of ATS
if the worldwide mainstream media deny whats happening in Montreal
then its the net duty to make it know


Is it that they are ignoring it, or rather they report stories of importance to a large audience? These so called "Movements" involve a tiny portion of the population and in fact less and less as time goes by.

Kids rioting for handouts instead of a hand up are not worth more than an occasional mention. Kids and young adults who enjoy life in free societies with ample opportunity, don't exactly endear themselves with the 99% who don't share their madness and demands for handouts they do nothing to earn.

I'll bet it does anger attention seekers when they don't get the attention they crave. Rational people (the majority of us) are neither impressed nor fooled by this. It's always best to ignore childish mentalities throwing temper tantrums when they don't get the whole world handed to them, paid for by mature adults who actually contribute to society.

Not surprise at all .. this is what im saying
worldwide media have censored any new updates about the situation
CNN just dont care about it or the government told them not to show image
to prevent any americans of doing the same

Tomorrow it will be the hundred days of protest
they say that tomorrow they will organise a very big protest
maybe like the one in march that involved 300 000 marching people

and its not only in Montreal but in many other smaller cities in the province of Quebec
like Victoriaville,Sherbrooke,Dummondville,Quebec city etc
it is nation wide

During the biggest manifestation, there was around 200 thousand people in the streets.

Now, law 78 isn't just a student's story anymore. It affects Everyone.

Tomorrow, I hope to see at least twice the amount of people in the streets.

SAY NO TO DICTATORSHIP.

I live in quebec, and all this is true, they passed a bill the same day it was released, i bet nobody could even read the full thing.

The people is pissed.

There has been protestation in almost every city.

There has been 70ish protest in my city alone since the beginning of summer.

some heads are about to roll.

I just wrote a little about this is my blog, Disorder13.
I'll post the article here since I think its a good message to get out there for some of the people that dont understand the importance of what is going on here in Montreal.
I'm not saying that anyone here doesn't understand, but incase someone comes across this thread who doesn't understand, it should be helpful.




Just watch me!?, Just watch THIS!!..

Even if you are not for what the students are for, you need to understand that they were so quick to pass the anti-protest/police state law that they obviously would have done so this year whether it was student protests, abortion protests, lack of iPods at the Apple store, etc.

Then you might say "how does this effect me? I dont protest".
It effects you as a Quebecer because of what it allows our government to do now and it effects you wherever you are in the world because this is a model for all other places.
It effects everyone because without the ability to democratically demonstrate an opposition to the choices of the government, they are able to pass any bill they see fit for the people. It took them 2 days to pass this bill, now without protestors having a valid say; they are able to pass any laws they see fit without giving it time to find out if the people are against those laws.

In short: It makes the government a dictatorship!

I am kind of happy about the no mask policy, it protects the protesters form the police and agent provocateurs, I consider that a win for freedom.

200 thousand protesters? You ought to check your facts, do you have any proof of such a massive protest?

This thread is making Canadians look silly. I'm from Toronto and support what the students are doing but the people commenting on this thread are incorrect about some facts. For one, summer has not begun yet, I know its hot guys but it is spring.

•Any demonstration including 25 or more people would need to submit its route, location, time, date and duration to police at least eight hours in advance for approval. Police would be allowed to order modifications to the protest.

•Protest organizers, as well as any student association or federation of associations that participate in a demonstration, are accountable for the actions of all participants in the demonstration, under threat of fine.

•All protests that may hinder access to classes, whether directly or indirectly, are not allowed within 50 metres of the grounds of any teaching establishment. All protests within schools that hinder access to classes, stops the resumption or continuation of classes are also banned.

Both the Montreal by-law and Bill 78 are to come into effect on Saturday, May 19. There have been nightly rallies in Montreal for 24 consecutive nights. Another massive rally is scheduled for May 22 (which will mark the 100th day of the strike).

These are just some of the provisions of Anti Protest Law Bill 78. These are ridiculous and only will be used in the future to prevent any civil disobedience if we don't nip it in the butt now and stand up for our rights as citizens.

I see this, as well as other recent "protests" around the world as being very significant in terms of the future of public assembly in this free country (Canada). (countries:America). I am Canadian but consider myself part of America because we are the little brother and will follow our big Bro (Merika) wherever he goes, supporting whatever decision he makes.

Take heed to this Americans.

LOL, all governments use violence and could not exist without physically harming/detaining others. It is irrational to think that a country, or government, or even this world itself could exist without plentiful violence. All governments are always in danger or violence. That's why they have militarys. ANYONE with more than a 100 bucks in there wallet, or a fancy watch on their wrist, or anything of value, let alone an entire country, is always in danger of violence.

I think if the students win, the cost of training a student will be split amongst the working force through taxing and the next elections are coming and that wont look good for the party currently in power. So, giving the bill to the students who are a minority in this population of predominantly ageing baby boomer is the easiest way out. But those pesky students won't lay down the sword so easily, in fact they are so stubborn that the education minister Lyne Beauchamp resigned because this is a challenge and well she was there for a walk in the park and not for actually dealing with political issues.

Right now we have a disproportionate population, we have way to many old people here in Canada. That's right the politicians are catering to this ageing population and ignoring the younger generation for an obvious reason cough* votes* cough.

So now we have students who have an ideology of a free educational system stuck on their mind and the rest of the old Quebeckers saying they're spoiled brats. All I see is two kids in the same bed pulling on the blanket. Everybody is looking out for their own wallet in the end in our beautiful socialist/capitalist society. However we do live in a democratie so I would be interested in seeing how this would turn out in a referendum.
