The people of Quebec have taken up banging pots and pans in protests against state sponsored tyranny, specifically this is being done to protests the tyrannical Bill 78 and the kettling of the students.
Pot banging as a form of civil disobedience has a long history. First originating in Chile The pots-and-pans protest has its roots in Chile, where people have used it for years as an effective, peaceful tool to express civil disobedience. The noisy cacerolazo tradition actually predates the Pinochet regime in Chile, but has endured there and spread to other countries as a method of showing popular defiance.Canada is so messed up right now, it is time for Canadians to unite. As one group of people and bang your pots and pans!
Beside police state Quebec. Canada is facing austerity. Sadly, the people are largely taking it lying down.
Except for the people of Quebec. The only Canadians with any courage and fortitude.
They are out enmasse. And the discontent is growing. The populace is supportive and is out banging their pots and pans.
"People took up the percussive protest Thursday night in several towns and cities including Sorel, Longueuil, Chambly, Repentigny, Trois-Rivieres and even in Abitibi — several hundred kilometres away from the hot spot of Montreal.People tapped the pots as they walked, the sounds mingling with shouts and chants. Others leaned out of car windows to bang their pans and one protester smacked a pot right in front of one police officer who looked on indifferently."
As for the rest of Canada?
-The age to collect your paid for pension has been increased.
- EI is being changed to make it more difficult to collect at a time when unemployment is high
EI is paid for by Canadian workers and their employees.
The government of the day is using the funds to pad their account books and pushing the costs of unemployment onto the lower levels of government.
-Foreign workers are being brought in to drive wages down
The Conservative Government- the Feds, are also allowing foreign workers to be brought into the country (imported) to work at a lower pay rate (slavery) then would be paid to a Canadian worker.
The EI changes and Foreign workers allowances work in tandem to lower wages and increase impoverishment for all.
-The Internet snooping bill- Again, the Federal government is bringing in what can be construed as nothing less them big brother tyranny. Canadians are going to pay to be spied upon.
To really put it in your face, to say to Canadians "FU all", your going to pay for this spying, on yourself.
-Increased military spending
Stay tuned for cuts to healthcare- because they are coming....
How much more are the Canadian people going to take?
Perhaps soon your government can "kettle" you all the way to some cozy concentration camp/psychiatric incarceration, that will be called a rehabilitative centre.
Kettling = Corraling
Like when the herd is taken for slaughter.
"Lawful access legislation"- Not.
Canada: Bang your pots and pans! Bang them loud and bang them hard!
