Jade Sambrook at ‘Grosse manif de soir’ Protest in Montreal
This peaceful protest against austerity took place on Saturday May 23 in Montreal. It was the first of a series of upcoming protests entitled ”Grosse manif de soir” that will be occurring every Saturday.
McGill Daily Photojournalist Shane Murphy was detained and fined by the Montreal Police, along with some thirty to forty other protestors who were ”kettled” and fined for their participation in the protest, including Jade Sambrook.
While this video does not specifically show the arrest of Shane Murphy, or the police ”kettle”, it is a personal firsthand account of the protest as it unfolded.
Interestingly, a Montreal Police Supervisor can be heard telling somebody from France ”to go protest in Paris and see what will happen”.
