Massive Student Protests Return to Streets of Montreal

Common Dreams staff

Thousands of protesters marched against planned tuition hikes in Montreal, opposing the Liberal government of Premier Jean Charest, two weeks before Quebec's parliamentary elections. The students marched just as they have on the 22nd of every month, for the last six months.

Organizers of Wednesday’s protest said it was the largest planned demonstration seen during an electoral campaign and that it signaled the revitalization of the protest movement.
