The Ligue des droits et libertes sent out a statement, signed by 55 organizations, denouncing the arrests at this year’s police brutality protest, which took place on March 15th. The protest, which has developed a reputation for ending in mass arrest, lasted less than ten minutes this year before protesters were alternately charged and herded into a series of kettles, where they were subsequently ticketed, processed, and then let go. The statement denounces the SPVM’s actions during the protest as well as P-6, the municipal bylaw that condones both kettling and what the Ligue des droits calls “political profiling”. CKUT spoke with Dominique Peschard from the Ligue des droits et libertes about the issue.
