2020 has been the year of speaking out and bringing important conversations to the forefront. Since May, various Montreal protests have taken place to speak out against social injustice and systemic racism in Quebec.
Today, Manifestation Çasuffit will take place at Parc Martin-Luther-King from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. to continue the fight against racism.
The event will be hosted by Bon cop Bad cop Québec, Defund the Police Coalition / Coalition pour le définancement de la police and Hoodstock.
Let's gather AGAIN to show our governements that we won't stop until changes are made!

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.
When: Sunday, October 4, 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Address: 3220, ave. Appleton, Montreal, QC; Parc Martin-Luther-King (Parc Kent)
Why You Need To Go: To continue fighting for an important cause here in the city, across the province and around the country.
