Riot Cops Take on Student Demonstrators in Montreal March

March 7, 2012 - Be forewarned: there is a fair amount of
swearing in this video. And police brutality. Striking Montreal students
occupy CEPUQ to protest a 75% tuition fee increase and other neo-liberal
austerity measures. Over 30 riot police show up and use pepper spray,
batons, stun grenades and other violent repression tactics against the
unarmed students. Shown is a peaceful protestor brutally arrested, multiple
people pepper sprayed and hit with shields and batons, riot cops throwing
stun grenades, and multiple charges by the line of riot cops.
The loud bangs are stun grenades that the riot cops threw low over the
crowd, causing students to be hit with shrapnel- someone may lose an eye,
and many folks took it in the face and neck. The final few seconds are
especially chaotic- a cop smashed me in the elbow with his baton, and when I
turned another one pepper sprayed me full in the face, that's why the last
second of the video has gone white.
