The Native Friendship Centre of Montreal (NFCM) is battling a "political vendetta," according to Brett Pineau, the Centre's executive director.

In his three years at the helm of the NFCM, Pineau has guided the 37 year-old centre back from near financial ruin to one of the most popular and valuable destinations for the Aboriginal population of Montreal.

Casseroles: Vancouver

Inspired by Jeremie Battaglia's gorgeous Montreal film, Vancouver answers the Quebec student movement with a pots and pans revolt of our own on May 30, 2012. There is a beauty that emerges when we learn and inspire each other, just as Quebec has done for the rest of Canada. When we speak to each other instead of through governments or the mainstream media. Here in Vancouver, we discovered what it means to make music together in the streets, in the rain, and you can see it on our faces. It is magic.

Got change? Want change? Spare some and get some by becoming a member of rabble.ca today.

The opening salvo in a promised, summer of protest by Quebec's student movement was delivered at the annual, Montreal Grand Prix auto race and surrounding festivities from June 7 to 10. Hundreds, sometimes thousands, of students and their allies used the high-profile event to press demands for a freeze in post-secondary tuition fees and an end to police and state repression.

Jason Bajada's song for Montreal: The sound your life makes

Never have I seen Montreal so beautifully together. People, young and old, march and protest the recent student tuition hike & bill 78 peacefully with their pots & pans every night at 8pm. Smiles are contagious and the city vibrates to the clanking as multiple neighbourhoods gather in the streets, uniting in one giant celebration.
This is the sound Montreal makes!
