MONTREAL — Quebec students applauded a UN agency Monday night for slamming the province’s controversial Bill 78, which puts limits on protests.
“It’s good that they condemned it,” said student Gabriel Barrea as he took a break from blowing on a loud horn in the nightly demonstration against the law and proposed tuition fee increases.
“It’s an affirmation of democracy,” he added, pointing out that the student demonstrations are regularly declared illegal. “During the F1, it was disgusting. They were making arrests and denying us access to the streets.”
