A well-known Montreal transgender rights activist (Esteban Torres) was charged Friday with assaulting Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.
He is charged in connection with an altercation at a vigil Thursday night in Montreal’s Gay Village for victims of the Orlando nightclub massacre.
Torres, who is affiliated with the anti-capitalist Pink Bloc movement, was heard shouting in Spanish for a revolution to begin.
At a peaceful vigil against violence, one of the transgender rights speakers becomes violent and physically attacks the Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard (Quebec Liberal Party).
Nothing about this physical assault on the Premier of Quebec in the American Press.
