The French language news here is covering this wall to wall; no other news is coming out right now, all the channels are on the protests. Unfortunately, I'm not finding anything about it on English feeds.
But let me tell you; this is huge. There has been support over the past few days from Canadian students, New York OWS, even a protest in Paris. Thanks everyone. And tomorrow night, if you feel like it, take out your frying pans at 8:00 and bang them for 15 minutes!

Hold on just a second.
I don't wanna sound like captain buzzkill but theres something highly suspicious about all this.
First, everyone I speak about this are absolutely outrage by these manifestations. Students, teachers, co-worker, clients, ppl in the streets, I can't find a soul around me that doesn't support (Liberals) Jean Charest in his process of slightly raising tuttion fees.
Second, why no one is talking about these huge construction contacts fraudulently obtained, the guy had an Italian name and the list starting to be effin long now. The corruption is totally everywhere and I really suspect this was all carefully planed by a few individuals to gain some "capital politique", The unions are getting behind this and at this point we all know what the unions are capable. This wont be pretty.. /sigh
By the look of it, its a storm in a glass. People are walking in the street for their daily exercise so its not that bad after all. I just hope someone is not trying to divide and conquer. Thats my only concern.

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.edit on 25-5-2012 by TheLastStand because: (no reason given)

The reason it started in Quebec, and not in the US is they don't have American Idol in french... all the American's are glued to their entertainment devices to even have an idea of whats happening in the real world.
No offense to any smart non-media sensitized Americans... although I fear you are a minority

They literally gave them the middle finger
Students in Quebec were asked to send the cops the route of their march. Here's what they replied with.

The sad, sad truth of all this is that people do not pay to be educated they pay to be indoctrinated. Real education is self-taught. I have learned more from reading Friedman, Hayek, Rothbard, Smith, Von Mises, Sutton, Springmeier, Cooper, Bernays and Quigley, than I did in my undergrad or graduate degrees.
