This morning, in the context of a court appearance by two men and two women arrested following an anti-capitalist protest on May 1st, CLAC (Anti-Capitalist Convergence) held a press briefing in front of the Montréal Palais de justice. A statement signed by more than thirty groups was released to media. The statement denounces political repression and profiling and re-asserts solidarity among different social and political groups in the face of any policing unit, such as GAMMA, which criminalizes our movements.
The preliminary investigation of the four accused will take place on 11 and 12 December 2012. They remain under conditions which restrict their right to protest and still do not have the right to communicate with each other.
