Police Break Bad - 2012 Quebec student protests

The 2012 Quebec student protests were a series of student demonstrations led by student unions such as the Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (ASSÉ) and their supporters against a proposal by the Quebec Cabinet, headed by Liberal Premier Jean Charest, to raise university tuition. In the spring of 2012, a massive student strike in opposition to a tuition hike rocked the streets of the Montréal for over six months. Protests became part of the daily and nightly reality of this Canadian province. Several times during this revolt, the numbers in the streets would reach over one hundred thousand. Police regularly attacked students and their allies, deploying chemical weapons, rubber bullets, and conducted mass arrests.

 

Police Break Bad is an ongoing series of short videos highlighting police brutality from around the world, cataloging the many instances in major events and day to day life.
