VIA22 : Global call to actions! Please SHARE!

(español abajo, français plus bas)

VIA22, an open collectif created in Montreal-Quebec, is sending a call to create a monthly process of global actions, the 22nd of each month, starting on october 22nd.
The idea is to collectively express the need that our marches and demonstrations become spaces for sharing knowledge about alternatives, and raise collective consciousness,. We want to support and connect initiatives around the world and contribute to the dialogue between global and local. Strength comes from creativity and unity!
People from Mexico, Spain, Mozambique, Senegal, Belarus, Croatia, England, Japan, Greece, El Salvador and Chile are already in contact with us, but we need to spread the word widely!

Victoriaville/Québec, 4th may protests against fees and more

[ENG]
“Buses unloaded students, unions and citizens from across Quebec to come forward and protest against the Liberal government that held its General Council this weekend in Victoriaville.The simple act of having put barriers on the ground separating the protesters from Congress, was enough to justify police violence against the people.

A rain of gas and violence fell on the demonstrators: more than 250 cans of CS gas, drawn from close range for some, many rubber bullets and hundreds of arrests. The police chief welcomed the excellent work of law enforcement …

ONE STUDENT LOST AN EYE AND ANOTHER IS BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH, many have suffered head injuries.

The SQ has hampered the work of paramedics who tried to rescue one of the injured students. Buses on the way home were also arrested, the police is now attacking the freedom to manifest and move in Québec.

The will of a man continues to crush democracy.”

MANIFESTATION À VICTORIAVILLE – 4 MAI 2012

Des autobus débarquaient des étudiants, syndicats et citoyens de tout le Québec pour venir manifester et protester contre le gouvernement libéral qui organisait son conseil général ce week-end à Victoriaville. La simple action d’avoir mise les barrières au sol séparant les manifestants du congrès, a suffit pour justifier les violences policières envers le peuple. Une pluie de gaz et de violence se sont abattues sur les manifestants : plus de 250 cannettes de gaz CS, tirées pour certaines à bout portant, de nombreuses balles de caoutchouc et une centaine d’arrestations. Le chef de la police se félicite de l’excellent travail des forces de l’ordre… Un étudiant a perdu un œil et un autre est entre la vie et la mort, plusieurs ont subi des traumatismes crâniens. La SQ a entravé l’action des ambulanciers qui tentaient de secourir l’un des étudiants blessés. Des autobus sur le chemin du retour ont aussi été arrêtés, la police s’attaque désormais à la liberté de manifester et de circuler sur le territoire québécois.

La volonté d’un homme continue d’écraser la démocratie.

La policia y el gobierno de Québec no solo aplastan las revendicaciones de un pueblo que quiere despertar sino que ademas ponen en peligro la vida de los estudiantes , en huelga desde hace ya 12 semanas, a favor del acceso gratuito a una educacion de calidad.
La mayoria de los actores sociales estàn mobilizados, mientras el gobierno liberal sigue reprimiendo.
Actualmente, despues de los enfrentamientos entre policias y manifestantes en la ciudad de Victoriaville, durante el congreso del Partido represor « liberal », varios manifestantes acabaron en el hospital, tememos por la vida de uno de ellos, quien perdio un ojo (3er ojo perdido desde el principio de l ahuelga), y mas de cien arrestaciones han sido llevadas a cabo ( por allanamientos en los autobuses y persecusion en las calles). Una Verguenza. Por que en Quebec, no todos estamos comodos y a favor de la industria Minera, de la represion y del capitalismo. Pueblos de America y del Mundo: Unidad ya!
