Late Sunday evening, the Quebec National Assembly passed the controversial Bill 21 into law, formally forbidding many public servants, including police officers and teachers, from wearing religious symbols like the hijab or yarmulke while performing their duties.\nThe passage of the law was met with widespread condemnation throughout Canada. In Montreal, opposition to Bill 21, which is often labelled racist and Islamophobic, has taken to the streets. Several rallies have sprouted in the city since the measure became law.\nNow, a group of Montrealers are organizing daily hunger strikes outside the Montreal office of premier François Legault to demonstrate their resistance to the ban. "As long as there is injustice, there will be no social peace," one participant told MTLBlog.\nThe "rotating hunger strike" allows protestors to fast for 24-hour periods. Others will commit to 5 consecutive days without food. "I might not have a lot to give, but I will put my body on the line to prevent this bill," another participant made clear.\nMTLBlog visited the scene of the strike and spoke with protestors this afternoon.
