Striking Quebecers are getting creative. Protesters — dubbed ‘casseroles’ — took to the streets with pots and pans in Montreal and other Quebec cities this week. But loud noise wasn’t the only thing they’ve created. Take a look at this beautiful black-and-white video going viral at the moment.

Manifestation à Montréal contre la hausse des frais de scolarité et la loi 78. Les gens se retrouvent à des coins de rues pour faire le plus de bruit possible à l’aide de casseroles.
Un grand merci à Avec pas d’casque et Grosse Boîte pour la musique!
Protest in Montreal against the rise of tuition fees in Quebec and the new law 78.

Every evening at 8pm people meet in the street with their pots and pans and make all the noise they can. A big thank you to the band Avec pas d’casque and their record label Grosse Boîte.
