Today I attended a demonstration against the Legault government’s immigration reform.
While students were speaking, members of extreme right groups entered the crowd and began pushing people while screaming racist slogans right as the speeches were being getting underway.
The police intervened quickly, but not quickly enough in my opinion. The situation could easily have turned into a major altercation.
Members of the far right groups followed the demonstration throughout our entire route. The most popular slogans of these far-right extremists were; long live Legault, long live the CAQ, long live Simon Jodoin-Barrette.
The Parti Vert du Québec is strongly opposed to the immigration reform proposed by the CAQ and condemns the racism of Premier Legault and his government.
