Make Some Noise: It’s Casseroles Night Around The World!

Make Some Noise: It's Casseroles Night Around The World!

Every night in Montreal at 8pm, the sounds of thousands of folks banging pots and pans ring across town as folks continue to protest Quebec tuition hikes via Casseroles, a form of popular protest practiced in many Spanish-speaking countries.

It’s an oddly beautiful ordeal that creates a pretty remarkable sense of community, as best summarized via this popular video that has been making the internet rounds:

And tonight is your chance to partake, wherever you are, and show solidarity with the now 110 day student strike in Quebec. Events have been planned tonight at 8pm in cities across Canada and around the world, including New York City, Toronto, Vancouver, Paris, London, Brussels, Calgary, DC, and, of course, Montreal.
