On Saturday March 15, 288 people were rounded up and arrested while protesting police brutality in Montreal, Quebec Canada.
The official reason for the arrests was that the protesters did not alert the proper authorities in regards to their location and intentions - their itinerary, police said.
Arrests were made although the organization responsible for leading the protests, the Collective Opposing Police Brutality (COPB), has organized protests in the same location for the past 18 years.
Police still claim they require prior notification for a demonstration.
