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.
Hey op, please be more specific. "people" is the wrong word. "international socialist" or "communist" is more fitting considering the crowd wears red and we all know what "red square" means eh comrade?
I want nothing to do with these people or their ideals of government. Period. I feel for the students but these "people" and what they are asking for is a very slippery slope that starts with their request of free education and ends with their total enslavement.
Whoever these idiots are (mostly occupy), they do not deserve to be canadian.
To be more specific these idiots are being frog marched by government shills to get a mask law passed. They want to classify everyone who does not like the crap government dishes out, that means if someone is wearing a mask where the cameras cannot facial id them and if there's too many people like that, all they have to do is send in 1 provocateur to cause damage of any sort and the police get to arrest them all, and even have a tool to put away a CHUNK of activists if they are dumb enough to wear a mask now.
