On the 19th of April 2012, I was protesting around the Palais des congrès in Montréal, Québec. That day our corrupted prime Minister Jean Charest had organized the “Salon du Plan nord.” A sell out of all natural resources in northern Québec. I came with a group of students who are protesting against a proposed 75% tuition fee increase, also referred as the Red Squares Movement. Marching with us where Innu Indians and environmentalists. Things rapidly went wrong after protesters tried to enter the convention center, and Jean Charest made jokes about them. One person received a flash bang in his face. All types of dispersion agents where used against us: flash bangs, rubber bullets, tear gas and mace. On my behalf I was agressed by all of them. At one point the tear gas made me enter a state of primal pain, luckily someone had malox to ease the pain. For the first time of my life, I felt agressed in my liberties. - Olivier
