More than 150 Calgarians banged pots and pans downtown Wednesday night in support of Quebec students.
The group walked from Eighth Avenue and First Street S.W. to city hall and then back, making noise for over an hour.
The rally was inspired by Quebec's student movement's "casserole" rallies.
Casserole rallies — or cacerolazos — originated in Latin American countries as a form of popular protest where people bang pots and pans.
Participant Kelly Dowdell said she was at the rally not only to support Quebec students' fight against rising tuition, but to show her discontent with Bill 78, the legislation that could limit the right to protest.
Dowdell said she was impressed with how many people showed up.
"We’re not known for showing a lot of solidarity with Quebec, and I think the turnout shows that this is a universal issue that young people are facing around the world."
