(Montreal) Thugs tried to overshadow the big peaceful demonstration held Sunday night in Montreal. If the traders have picked up the damage and the investigation continues to find the criminals, the message proclaimed by the demonstrators, it continues to resonate. Posted on June 1, 2020, at 8:01 p.m. Ugo GiguèreThe Canadian PressDorothy Rau, executive director of Audace au Feminine, has no desire to give a crumb of importance to thugs who are only looking for a pretext to create mayhem.“I don’t want these people to tarnish the message of this demonstration which wants to remind people that racism exists; that police brutality must no longer take place; that we ask our elected officials to put laws in place against racial profiling, “said Mme Rau, whose mission is to help the emancipation and social and economic empowerment of black women. PHOTO OLIVIER JEAN, THE PRESS“I salute the courage of the people who have moved through this pandemic where we are just beginning to deconfinement. I am impressed to see so many people and I am sure that if it were not in times of crisis we would have doubled or tripled the number of people ”, underlines the one who could not herself attend while held over the weekend its International Exhibition of Black Women in virtual mode.For Dorothy Rau, the Black Lives Matter anti-racism movement, vigorously revived since the death of George Floyd, this African-American killed during a police intervention in Minnesota, equally affects the black community of Quebec and Canada.“Beyond the media reports, there are all those who experience racial profiling on a daily basis,” she notes. As we say in good Quebec, we are disgusted! ”Solidarity at Steve’sMany downtown businesses have been struck by a few ill-intentioned people, but Steve’s Music Store is perhaps one of those who suffered the most damage. At this institution so dear to musicians, we deplore the misdeeds, but we especially regret to shade the demonstrators.“We are happy that the world thinks of us, but that removes the visibility of an event that was noble, which should have had a different impact on our city,” regrets Lenny Lanteigne, head of the percussion department at the store.“Unfortunately, that leaves a black eye on this demonstration there,” he describes, describing as “catastrophic” the situation of police brutality, racism and racial profiling that the demonstrators denounced.Regarding the damage assessment at Steve’s, we speak of “a small hurricane in the store”. Many guitars and other equipment have been stolen and broken. A scene that breaks the heart for a musician, confides Mr. Lanteigne who is reassured to know that no one has been injured.Peaceful eventSunday, the demonstration had started peacefully, in the late afternoon, near the headquarters of the City of Montreal Police Service (SPVM). Several thousand people marched to denounce racist violence and police impunity, following the death of George Floyd, the African American killed during a police intervention last Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.The event was not only a demonstration of solidarity with the mobilization south of the border, but also an opportunity to decry the violence experienced here, in Quebec and elsewhere in Canada.Hoodstock social forum co-founder Will Prosper, who was part of the march organization, said he has never seen such a large movement for anti-racism in Quebec.“For people to go out during the coronavirus period to come and give this message, it is because we will no longer tolerate that here,” observed the ex-police officer who became an activist and documentary maker on Sunday.On Twitter, the SPVM acknowledged that everything was done “in respect and in order” until the arrival of the thugs.It was when the demonstrators returned to their meeting point that they came up against two police roadblocks that blocked access to the SPVM headquarters, on rue Saint-Urbain, which gave rise to confrontations. face tensed with agents in riot gear.
