On Thursday, April 3rd, thousands of people gathered for the ASSE national demonstration against austerity. The crowd marched in downtown Montreal against government austerity programs. ASSE representative Benjamin Gingras said „Austerity is dangerous and unnecessary and will be fought. Whoever is elected on April 7th, we will be there all of us, and we’ll show them that austerity will not be tolerated in Quebec.“ You’re now going to hear the highlights of this demonstration. This includes the ASSE statements to the press by Benjamin Gingras and Justin Arcand, as well as some of the opening speeches by supporing organizations, and also interviews with a couple of protesters.
