This past Thursday, March 23, 200,000 students from all over Quebec took over the streets of downtown Montreal in the biggest rally ever against Prime Minister Charest's hike in tuition fees.
Incredibly there were no arrests.
There have been protesting and student strikes going on for the past two weeks now, and some was not so civilized.
You can watch the full slideshow here.
Wow, that's a lot of people! I'm on the side of the kids. Young people are getting robbed of their future. At least in America, my kids' generation is the first generation that is likely to be much, much worse off than the parents, in terms of opportunity, AND income.
I will be tagging this, as I'm sure you know. =)
And the pics don't do justice to the size of the crowd... I've seen helicopter shots where you can see this seemingly endless river of people flowing between the buildings in all the streets around the big corridor. It was really impressive.
What's ironic about this red river of protest is that red is also the color of Charest's Liberal Party.
