Maple Spring

Occupy 2012 features the evolution of the Quebec student strike into nightly demonstrations in Montreal for a different kind of society. As noted on the video, the attempt by the Quebec parliament to quell dissent by making public assembly illegal, has been met with public marches in the hundreds of thousands every night. As other segments of Quebec society join the students in challenging the legitimacy of state-imposed austerity and security measures, Montreal -- like Chiapas, Mexico -- has become a center of opposition to neoliberalism in North America.

Montreal ca ira!
