Following the brutal police dispersement of the occupation of the University of Quebec at Montreal the night before, protesters wanted to retake the streets and demonstrate their opposition to austerity with a protest on the afternoon of Apr. 9.
The police had other ideas, and encircled the head of the protest in a kettle within minutes. A significant group reformed and marched on before being violently dispersed outside the doors of UQAM.
