(en) Canada, montreal anti-ftaa demo

Date Sat, 05 Nov 2005 11:23:28 +0200

hi there folks -- just a quick note to say there was really spirited
anti-ftaa demo in montreal earlier tonite, in solidarity with protests in
argentina, organized by komiteal (the latin america committee of CLAC*).
about 400 folks marched thru downtown streets, taking over a major
intersection for more than an hour for a street party, with food, music,
theatre, stenciling, pinata, banners and more. there was a lot of old
furniture brought out to make things a little comfy. a huge bonfire was
lit, and folks dispersed just before the riot police made their
predictable appearence.

others will probably post photos soon.

the demo happened a day after the United Nations High Commission on Human
Rights, in their annual report, singled out montreal cops for criticism
for their mass arrests of demonstrators at previous demos in the past 4-5

anyways, any news about soldiarity actions elsewhere in pga-na land?

-- jaggi.
