A long evening march took place in Montreal this Friday in solidarity with Palestine. Hundreds of Montrealers took to the streets from 6pm to 12am. The protest was organized by PAJU- Palestinian & Jewish Unity. Protesters gathered to denounce Israeli apartheid and the ongoing occupation and colonisation of Palestine. Among the protesters, Anarchopanda pour la gratuité scolaire was also marching in solidarity.
