Manif du 8 mars 2012 – Femmes dans la rue sans peur/March 8 2012 Demonstration- Women bravely take the streets

Malgré une pluie abondante, plus de 500 femmes ont répondu à l’appel des Femmes de diverses origines à Montréal pour la manifestation de la Journée internationale des femmes le 8 mars. Etudiantes et étudiants en grève, et les partisans de la semaine contre l’apartheid Israelien se sont joints aux mainfestants au long de la rue Ste-Catherine, artère principale de la ville.

Despite pouring rain, over 500 women came out in response to the call by Women of Diverse Origins for the International Women’s Day demonstration on March 8. Striking students (with helicopters and mounted police in their wake) joined in, as did participants fom anti-Israeli apartheid week as the crowd marched down St-Catherine street, in the middle of downtown Montreal.
