As part of the hemisphere-wide actions in solidarity with the protests in Quito, Ecuador against the Free Trade Area of the Americas, striking students, supporters of the Palestinian struggle, and various other members of the Montreal community marched in a massive show of support Thursday.

The protesters in Quito are counting on just such demonstrations of solidarity to contain police attacks.
