The Mysterious Riot

Quebec City 1917, Quebec City 2001, Montreal-Nord 2008 … Riots have always
frightened the ruling classes. The dominant ideologues have tried to discredit
riots by all means at their disposal. Riots are supposedly 'irrational',
'violent', and a product of the 'rabble', 'troublemakers' and 'rock-throwers'.
Through an analysis of some of Quebec's past riots, we will see what are the
actual characteristics of a riot, beyond the stereotypes. What are the factors
leading to a riot? Who takes part? Are there particular characteristics of
riots? Can we associate a precise political ideology with riots? To what extent
are they strategic? Together, we will try to understand a bit better this form
of rebellion.

Presented by Marc-André Cyr, anarchist activist.

All presentations in French, with whisper translation towards English.
