From Orangutan: Photos of Montreal lawyers marching against Law 78,

On Monday evening in Montreal, hundreds of lawyers donned their professional black robes and took to the streets on a silent march to protest Law 78 (also known as the “loi spéciale”), the legislation that the Jean Charest government recently passed in an attempt to put a stop to the Quebec student movement towards accessible post-secondary education. The Quebec Bar has expressed serious concerns over Law 78 for, among other things, its limitations imposed on student associations, its judicialization of debates, its use of the criminal justice system, and its granting of increased powers to the Minister of Education, Michelle Courchesne, who in effect, is able to amend laws in Quebec without consulting the people, members of the National Assembly, or even colleagues. Here are some of my photos of the march, which began at 6:30 p.m. at the Palais de justice (courthouse) and made its way through Old Montreal, Chinatown, the Quartier des spectacles (entertainment quarter), and finally to Place Emilie-Gamelin, the usual starting point of the nightly student movement demonstrations that begin at 8:30 p.m.
