On November 27th, 2018, at the municipal court of Quebec City, six people arrested during the G7 protests appeared before the court.
These people all face a criminal accusation of unlawful assembly. Some of these people also face other accusation, including obstructing the work of a peace officer and a weapons charge with criminal intent for dog repellent.
These people exercised their right for free speech and peaceful assembly, rights described in the Canadian and Quebec Charters of Rights. These people were arrested and detained for four days after being arrested by SPVQ and/or SQ police.
