Non to austerity in Quebec: Demonstrations scheduled for Saturday

Spring is being welcomed in Quebec with a Popular Protest (Manifestation populaire) against austerity and the petro-economy this Saturday, March 21, called by Printemps 2015 organizers. Saturday's event in Montreal will be the biggest of the day, though others are planned around Quebec. 

Printemps 2015, named in reference to the "Maple Spring" student movement of spring 2012, pegs austerity and a fossil fuel economy as the forces to rally against.
