The hosts want to remind Montrealers that despite the protest against racism that took place on May 31, "nothing was done by the governments to eradicate it, but a lot was done by the community!!"

Another protest took place just yesterday to fight for justice for Joyce Echaquan, an Indigenous woman who was not only denied medical treatment that led to her death but was the victim of discriminatory slurs in a Quebec hospital.

In the red alert restrictions and protocols laid out by the provincial government that came into effect on Thursday, October 1, protests are permitted.

Attendees must maintain social distancing and are required to wear masks.
