The streets of Montreal were in discord last night as Montreal protesters, in support of the global May Day movement, were brutally detained by Montreal's police force.
Protesters converged near Papineau and Ontario, with smaller groups also at St. Catherine/Plessis and Place des Arts.
During the anti-capitalism demonstrations, five Montrealers were arrested and 132 were fined tickets of a whopping $638.
See how it all went down through on-site Montrealer's tweets and photos.
Guess the SPVM weren't enough
One street corner you shouldn't post up by, no matter your profession

Arrests are one thing, but flippin' us all off? Uncool.
Because marching bands are too dangerous for the outdoors
