Protesters descended on the International Media Centre in Quebec City on Thursday, in the first of a series of planned protests ahead of the 44th Group of Seven (G7) summit opening on June 8. «Misogynists will discuss women rights, militarists will discuss peace, capitalists will discuss environmental protection,» said Marieve, an activist, speaking of planned meetings and treaties between... Еще participating world leaders. The first day of the protest was relatively calm despite heavy police presence. The 44th G7 summit is set to take place over two days, June 8 and 9 in La Malbaie in Quebec. State leaders from the US, the UK, France, Canada, Japan, Germany, Italy and representatives of the EU are set to attend. Russia's membership was suspended from the G8 in 2014, resulting in reformating the forum into G7.
