To the streets! Montrealers tell Charest NO to Loi 78 and tuition hikes

rabble contributor Bill Clennett shares a taste of what the Montreal protests against Charest government's Loi 78 and proposed tuition increases are like.  Recorded on the evening of May 24th, the video presents two of the demos: beginning with one of the local community actions in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood and from there to a major night time demo that brought thousands of people on the streets of downtown Montreal, and from there proceeded throughout the city for about four hours.

Video: Casseroles -- Montreal May 24

For more than 100 days, Quebec students have been protesting a rise in tuition fees. With the imposition of Loi 78, limiting the rights to protest, Quebecers en masse have been joining them in the streets -- with pots and pans. 

Every evening at 8:00 p.m. people meet in the street with their pots and pans and make all the noise they can in protest. Music thanks to the band Avec pas d'casque and their record label Grosse Boîte
