Une Tintamarre of tin and metal percussion reigns the soundscape of neighbourhood streets in Montréal , some take to their balconies, some opt for the stoop or stairs, and others form impromptu marching bands.Citizens in Montreal have adopted the Chilean protest tactic of Cacerolazo over the past few evenings starting at 8pm and going late into the night in some neighbourhoods. They are  making some rhythmic noise to protest against the undemocratic emergency Law 78 put in place by the Charest Government to curb student and citizen activist protests in Montreal. What the law has done, has increased the numbers on the streets, and is bringing neighbours together (and angering some as well…). Take it to the streets at 8pm with  lids, frying pans, double boilers, mixing bowls and utensils.
