Occupons Montréal in Photos

I've had some time to go through my photos of the protest on October 16, and I've chosen those that best reflect the strong organization of the demonstration as well as the spirit of the day. The size of the encampment at Victoria Square has apparently doubled in just a few days and donations have been pouring in to keep the campers relatively comfortable.

The latest news was that a porta-potty had been donated for the residents. The square has unofficially undergone a name change. Victoria Square, it is no longer! The new name is Place du peuple or the People's Square. If you haven't been down to visit the new community, I suggest you do. You will be pleasantly surprised by how organized things are. If you're still unsure about what the Occupy movement is all about (Carine), I encourage you to listen to what Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki has to say about it after the pictures.

He really is! And he did such a great job in synthesizing the need for the Occupy movement.
