Demonstration Against The Plan Nord In Pictures

by Neal Rockwell

Police were overwhelmed by demonstrators Friday, before receiving reinforcements from the Sûreté du Québec.

One of the police officers (seen accepting a flower from a demonstrator in the third and second to last photographs) offered a quasi apology, stating "I don't have a choice" in regards to his presence. This is not really true of course, but perhaps suggests the beginning of fissures in the morale of the Montreal riot squad. At any rate, historically it is never a good sign for the regime when military and police start accepting flowers from activists.
