Below are 2 videos from Occupy Montréal media.

The first is from yesterday’s march that gathered up to 25,000 people on the streets of Montréal.

This video includes images taken from a variety of recent protests from the student movement. The audio is from a passionate speech given by Julien Lavoie. The entire speech can be read on page 9 of Fermaille, the student publication from the Association Étudiante du module d’études littéraires (AEMEL-UQAM).
