REPORT THIS FUCKER

Georges-André Asselin has been taking photos of women in the Quebec City region without their consent for years, and posting the photos on various platforms online. He has also crashed various feminist conferences and harrassed people there.

He showcases his photos publicly online, so let’s shame him publicly. Please visit the various pages and report him for harrassment.

It’s rare that a protest movement affects the way thousands of people get dressed, but the strike has done just that, turning the red square into both a symbol of solidarity and, for some, a conscious fashion statement.

Read “Seeing Red” by our Montreal Wornette, Sacha Jackson, on the WORN blog.

Lookit who it is!

click on the link to read the full article! these are really great portraits with a nice article. my friend salima punjani took some photos on june 22nd here in quebec city and the lip red square came up more than a few times:

i’ve been finding it really compelling to see how people have adopted the red square here in quebec. after years of recycled ribbons for various causes, it’s refreshing to see a lot of creativity coming out of this movement. if it draws more attention to the cause at the end of the day, and gets more people thinking critically, i think that’s amazing.

36 Hours in Quebec City »

de-la-tourelle:

One of the oldest cities in North America, Quebec City, with its revitalized parks and gleaming cultural centers, has emerged from the long shadow of its popular neighbor, Montreal.

QUEBEC APPRECIATION, YEAH!!

for the record, their “chocolate, books and beer” recommendations are all within a 3 minute walk from my house. FUCK YEAH. i have weekly writing dates with karina at the bookstore where you can drink apple cider if you like and they have big comfy chairs. 

of all of their recommendations, i highly endorse all (except for 8 and 9). also sadly one of the antique stores they recommend closed two weeks ago, but luckily for me i was able to get a few great deals that otherwise would have been way out of my budget.
