Meet the student strikers on the front lines of a culture war

Today in the streets of Montreal an estimated 75,000 marched through a glorious sunny spring day, and the odd cloud of tear gas, to denounce the Quebec Liberal government's austerity policies.

This spectacular piece of time-lapse photography by videographer Mario Jean, aka MADOC, shows the view from the famous Berri overpass as the march passes underneath. In a single minute of advanced reality, tens of thousands stream past. Don't miss it, and be sure to share it.
