Anti-capitalist marchers in Montreal rounded up during May Day demonstration

May 1, 2014

Police rounded up a few dozen anti-capitalist protesters in Montreal on Thursday evening just as they began marching as part of the annual May Day demonstration for workers’ rights.

The demonstrators took to the streets to voice their opposition to the “ravages” of capitalism, with this year’s theme focused on government austerity, environmental damage inflicted by the mining industry and the financial sector that supports it.

But the group barely made it two city blocks before riot police cornered them.

In recent years, police have shown little tolerance for demonstrations in Montreal and have wasted little time shutting down marches.
