Casseroles

Torontonians donned red squares and took up pots and pans in solidarity with the Quebec student strike against tuition fee increases and Bill 78. The famous cacerolazo protest was started in Spanish speaking countries like Argentina and Chile and involves banging on kitchen implements to draw attention to public concerns.
