Video of massive neighbourhood #potsinprogress in Montreal


via bopollo from /r/occupywallstreet:

I'm never going to forget that experience. Just walked out of my house banging a pot, then everyone else on my block appeared at their balconies and doors doing the same thing, so we decided to go for a walk. Turns out everyone else in the neighbourhood was also banging their pots, so we all got together and walked around for a few hours. Finished the night with a few beers and some new friends.

This is what democracy looks like.

Again last night, Quebecers and people around the world showed their indignation for corruption, undemocratic practices, and debt slavery by joining their communities in a thunderous clanging of pots! In coordination with Occupy Wall Street and other groups, people in the US and Europe also started banging on pots.

Our traditional methods of communicating - through our media, our politics, our business - are corrupt and unusable, so we will get our message out with pots!

Let's build a global movement!

Last year, the strength of Occupy Wall Street created the foundation for a continent-wide movement through the occupation of public squares and parks.

This spring, la Belle Province of Quebec has built the momentum, strength, and opportunity to be a launchpad for new North American occupations. Occupons Montréal was evicted from la Place du Peuple, but now we're occupying our entire city on an epic and unimaginable scale. Real change is in the air.

Take advantage of our momentum! This is your chance!

I hope your mood is very contagious.

wow, you'd think they'd post the video of the march of a hundred thousand people marching, not the tiny march down the street. I wonder where that video is.

Look at the other - 1st post on the Montreal protest.

yeah, maybe only 500 in that one neighbourhood, but multiply that by every other neighbourhood in Montreal, plus every other city in Quebec. And yes, there was a police escort, but it was an illegal march and totally spontaneous.

NYC students have faced rising student debt for far too long. The strike in Quebec symbolizes a struggle for a system that provides everyone equal opportunity to achieve their full potential. Debt is slavery and education is the liberation that will help us win all our struggles. It is time to bring Quebec's infinite strike to the United States, starting in NYC. Nightly marches depart from Washington Square Park at 8 PM.

We have created a Facebook page and Twitter to help us organize actions around NYC infinite strike Quebec solidarity marches, please like, follow, and share:
