Montreal’s 18th annual march against police brutality was declared illegal a matter of minutes after its scheduled start time of 3 p.m. at the intersection of Jean-Talon and Châteaubriand streets.

Montreal police officers dressed in riot gear, including horse-mounted officers, mobilized soon after the announcement to move protesters away from the intersection. An estimated 150 protesters were soon caught in a kettling manoeuvre south of the protest zone on Châteaubriand Street.

Turning the World Right Side Up

Lawless imperial rampaging turns it upside down. America is the main world belligerent. War on humanity is longstanding policy.

So is replacing all sovereign independent governments with pro-US vassal ones. Obama's war on Syria rages. Conditions in Ukraine remain incendiary.

Obama wants regime change in Venezuela. He stoked weeks of violence pursuing it. He's waging war on freedom at home.

Imagine championing democratic freedoms while going all-out to destroy them. Obama wants them extinguished globally.

Today is the most perilous time in world history. Daily events should scare everyone. At stake is humanity's survival.


Conditions go from bad to worse. Peacemakers are vilified. Warmakers win peace prizes.

Propagandists glorify war in the name of peace. Nations are destroyed to free them. Monied interests alone benefit.
