As we reached the end of the Anarchist festival in Montreal last week, let’s not forget that anti-capitalism movements are still in full-swing. CLAC, a Montreal organization that regroups several anti-capitalist movements, has been involved in the fight against capitalism for several years now. This radical left organization contests economic institutions and regularly organizes demonstrations against major international meetings such as the G8, the G20, and even the F1 Grand Prix back in 2012.  CLAC organized a protest action, on June 10th, to bring attention to the problems underlying the 20th international economic forum of the Americas. What the problems can an anti-capitalist movement run into in Canada? How does the CLAC get its message across? We talked to Fred Burrill, a member of CLAC, who was at the demonstration on June 10.
