During the Quebec student protests against the tuition hikes, members of the press came under attack by the SPVM (Montreal Police).

The 49th night protest in Montreal was peaceful, like most of the nocturnal marches, which is why mainstream media outlets hardly cover them at all. Remember for them, if it bleeds it leads.

Lots of anger during this 48th consecutive night protest in Montreal. Thanks, once again, to Premier Jean Charest, the Montreal Police Service (SPVM), and the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) for making Montreal a police state. And more important, thanks to my fellow protesters for marching because you believe in a better future for all of us.

Just a few of my photos of Tuesday’s protest in Montreal, the single biggest act of civil disobedience in Canadian history. Estimates of crowd numbers run from the tens of thousands all the way up to 500,000. The protest marked the 100th day of the Quebec student strike.

From Orangutan: Video: Hello Montreal Police State,

While sitting on an outdoor patio in downtown Montreal Saturday night as the 26th consecutive protest against the Quebec Liberal government’s proposed tuition hikes marched by, bar patrons were treated to pepper spray from the City of Montréal Police Service. With the passing of Bill 78 on Friday, which made the right of Quebec citizens to protest subject to the conditions and controls exercised arbitrarily by the police, the Quebec student movement has further escalated.

The Jean Charest led government, incidentally, is also in the midst of a public-works contracts corruption scandal involving, among other factions, the Mafia. . . . → Read More: From Orangutan: Video: Hello Montreal Police State,
