A hairdresser, a grocery store, a health center and soon even a school… Protesters are organizing against sewage cards.

Like Angelique, who was a hairdresser before losing her job following government action. ” I arrived last Saturday with my scissors. I didn’t think it would be so lively. But we had people queuing for hours to get their hair cut. It’s incredible! ‘, rejoice.

In the alleys of what now looks like a village, Lucy, a former teacher, has set up between two tents what could soon look like a school. ” We’ve been here for a while and there are a lot of kids on site. So we thought it would be nice to have something more formal. Here, it will be like a little school. We have many teachers who have lost their jobs. So that we can prepare a school program for children ’ explains the young woman.

Around Parliament, many businesses had to close their doors due to trucks blocking roads. Susan owns a clothing store. After various confinement, this event, for her, is a real blow. ” It is really quiet! Customers can’t come or don’t want to come. We really hope it’s back to normal! ‘, she regrets.
