Montreal Israel Day Rally

 Yesterday was the 64th anniversary of the state of Israel and Montreal celebrated with a stylish sea of Stars of David. Thousands marched through the streets and ended at Dorchester Square where music and dancing began. It was a pretty hectic day for rallies, crowds, colours and protests. Just as the Israel day rally ended, the ironic student protest passed through Rene Lexwhile another student protest gathered at the northern side of Dorchester Square across the street. Police gathered around a group of hasidic jews protesting Israel day on the edge of Dorchester Square. All in all it was a great day for capturing the comings and goings of one urban square in a small city.
