One hundred people were arrested outside of my house last night. Close to 300 were arrested throughout Québec City.
Students, mostly; the ones who take to the streets when it's dark and march around town to condemn the actions of government.
We've seen this before: in 2012, the serpentine night rallies were routine. As the protests progressed then, the police repression grew.
Now, the students are back. But this time, it's not just students who are angry. Fed up with the radical austerity measures of the Liberal government, there has nearly been a protest a day in this province in all of 2015. Even the police arresting the students were protesting the government, in their silly pants.
