Tonight, May 24th, thousands of people throughout Quebec have spontaneously gotten up and are marching throughout the province.
What started off, 102 days ago, as a student protest to which the government responded by passing Bill 78, a repressive law limiting the right to
protest has now become a protest throughout the province by students, workers, job seekers. It doesn't matter anymore where you are from, people have
had enough of this corrupt government.
A couple of days ago, a teacher suggested using a method that worked well in Chile and in Argentina. The idea was to get people outside between 8:00
and 8:15 and to start banging on cooking pans. People throughout the province started doing this, but didn't stop at 8:15. And tonight they just
started marching through the streets.
One protest was organised in Montreal and one in Quebec city, but many more are going on throughout Montreal and across Quebec.
I never ever, in my wildest dreams, expected to see something like this here.
I am searching for English language coverage and will be posting these.
