Protesters participate in a “die-in” in front of the National Assembly during a rally for the prevention of domestic violence on April 2.

On April 2, thousands of people in more than 20 cities and towns across Quebec took part in rallies to denounce domestic violence and call on the provincial government to invest more in shelter space for women and families fleeing violence and in violence prevention programs. Several hundred people gathered in front of the National Assembly.
