Hundreds of people participated in a major action in Montreal this morning, shutting down the Montreal Stock Exchange, the heart of the city's financial district, for several hours.
The blockade was organized by the Coalition opposée à la tarification et à la privatisation des services publics. Alexa Conradi is the head of the Quebec Women's Federation and one of the spokeswomen for today's action. In this clip she speaks about the organization and the reasons behind this action, as well as the ongoing campaigns - including the province-wide student strike against tuition fee increases - that are certain to make it an eventful spring in Quebec.
