The group marched up Water Street to show solidarity, first of all, with the student (and now popular) movement in Quebec, and as a way to show popular discontent with a slew of undemocratic laws at the provincial and federal levels: Loi 78 in Quebec makes it illegal for groups of more than 50 to peacefully assemble, Omnibus bill C-38 (recently passed by the Conservatives) represents the most dangerous disregard for people and the environment we've seen in a long time, and Newfoundland access to information Law 29 (read more about it here, here, or here) hinders the public from accessing information.
There are so many reasons to be angry, and so we invite the public to gather peacefully with us next Wednesday at Harbourside Park at 8 pm for more discussion, marching, and pots and pans clanging!
Please circulate this message far and wide.
