The single most dramatic moment of the protests in Quebec came on the first day of the summit, when the thousands of protesters who had marched through the city finally reached “the wall.” Until that point no one had seen a single cop. Now, a phalanx of riot police, armed to the teeth with tear gas, pepper bombs and plastic bullets, waited silently behind the chain-link fence. There was a momentary pause, and then hundreds of masked activists–ranging from black-clad anarchists to Mohawk Warriors–descended on the wall itself, produced grappling hooks and wire cutters, and began to systematically tear it down.
