Following the G8/G20 summit, 900 or so people were arrested in Toronto, most of them innocent civilians who were just in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Many of them Quebecers. Some are still there. There were nation wide protests on June 30th and July 1st against these arrests, I went to the one in Montreal yesterday. Here are a few images: 1400 or so people met up downtown Montreal, Square St-Louis. From there, they marched down St-Denis, Sherbrooke, up St-Laurent and down Mont-Royal street, which are all 4 pretty heavily travelled, so gestion was an issue Throughout the march, the police were very present. A couple of motorbikes up front with 6 cops on bikes, lines of a dozen cops in bright yellow bids along each side, and a few cars and trucks taking the rear. However, the riot cops were also there, but they kept their distance and followed far back or on side streets. All in all, it was peaceful, nothing too eventful happening, a few arrests, nothing major. This guy along the route was probably wondering WTF was happening I must deliver this pizza... our restaurant's reputation is on the line... I have more up in my blog and about 40 or so on my flickr, if anyone is interested in seeing more.
