Mois contre les prisons hosted a rally at the Palais de Justice on Tuesday, December 1st. Banners were unfurled on the front steps of the courthouse with messages in support of prisoners and decried the current state of the Canadian prison system, which has been steadily deteriorating in the wake of austerity-driven budget cuts.

An array of passionate speeches delivered by the members emphasized the conditions faced by prisoners and detainees alike. Excerpts from the event can be heard in the above audio.
