15,000 people demonstrate in Montreal In solidarity with the Lebanese and Palestinian peoples


Montreal Planet Magazine





MONTREAL (6 August 2006) Leaders of Quebec's major political parties and unions, sixty community groups and well known Quebec artists led a huge demonstration of 15,000 people - one of the largest in the world thus far - and march through the streets of Montreal in solidarity with the people of Lebanon and Palestine.

The march was led by Gilles Duceppe, leader of the Bloc québécois, André Boisclair, leader of the Parti québécois, Liberal MP Denis Coderre, Bloc MP Maria Mouani, co-spokepersons Françoise David and Amir Khadir of Québec-Solidaire, and Henri Massé President of the Fédération des travailleurs du Québec.

It is clear that Montrealers stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Lebanon and Palestine against the criminal agression of Israel and their accomplices, the US, Britain and Stephen Harper.
