Where I live now I tend to hear about this stuff in advance. visiting my hometown of montreal yesterday I happened upon this mass die-in. I had been spending the day shooting headshots for a good friend when I lucked out on this. they were protesting the death of a cyclist on montreal street by a motorist.
It was incredible. They shut down rue ste. catherine in the late afternoon on a saturday. closed the city for ten minutes.
It was beautiful. I would say that it made a lot of montreal motorists angry, but that would mean the protesters really had no effect.

    At first I thought it was planned, but when I read the description - I thought this photo speaks volumes and may be used for embracing alternative transportation methods. Great shot regardless

    Excellent photograph. My nephew was killed by a truck while cycling (horrifying way to go for him, and the poor spectators who saw it happen). I applaud the effort made...

    At least there is outrage and perhaps they will have an effect in the long run. Things have to change and they will slowly, at best. We've had cyclists killed in Edmonton and life just goes on as usual...
