There is ringing at the door. That’s rare at this hour… But me, I end up hearing the knocking, and loudly, because I am already in front of the building’s main door, downstairs, with my coffee and my dog, ready for my morning walk. I see through the glass the shadow of several people and they are wearing the insignia of police officers… I am perplexed! Finally, I open the door.
We are at 3471?
Paul Red-Square, that’s here?
Yes. That’s my son.
Come in, ma’am, we have some questions to ask you.
I enter with my dog and my coffee. Shit, this messes up my routine. But I was scared that they would tell me that something had happened to Paul in China, and that he’d had an accident. Thankfully, it wasn’t that…

(Montreal) Quebec Solidaire MNA Amir Khadir is one of fifty protestors arrested tonight in Quebec City, La Presse has confirmed with the party’s head of communications in Quebec City, Christian Dubois.
Mr Dubois had the chance to converse briefly with MNA Kadir while he was aboard a Quebec police department detention bus, which was to bring all arrested protesters to the station.
Amir Khadir met up with the marchers on his bicycle, while the protest was happening in the area if the upper city on the Côte de la Montagne after he was done work. “It’s not the first time that he has participated in a student protest during this conflict, but it’s the first time that he’s arrested”, Mr Dubois said. “He admitted to me that he was very surprised at being arrested, because the protest was peaceful.”

(Québec) The student leaders unanimously denounce the massive arrests made Monday by the Québec police opposite the very building where negotiations are taking place.
“These arrests are arbitrary, almost random,” objected Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois of CLASSE. “The Québec police are starting to develop the very bad habit of carrying out mass arrests during peaceful protests.”
The president of FEUQ, Martine Desjardins, who wondered Monday on her twitter feed whether it was a question of “political arrests”, finds it strange that they took place so close to the building where talks are taking place.
