More May Day violence (Montreal)

More May Day violence to report of, as this time it occurred in downtown Montreal, Canada. Thousands of far left-wing youth descended upon the downtown core of Montreal for the annual May Day march. The theme as usual, was an anti-capitalist one. Eventually, the Montreal police had to break up the May Day march as it became violent and property damage occurred along the march route.

Watching this video, you can see that the majority of the May Day marchers were teenagers and those in their early 20's. I hardly saw any middle aged people or those who worked for a living. It seemed that the majority of the protesters/marchers in Montreal were students who probably lived at home with their parents and never worked a full-time job in their lives. Must have been a "cool" thing to smash someone's window or damage some hard-working person's property.
