Occupy Toronto and Steelworker Flash Mob

The United Steelworkers (USW) and Occupy Toronto join forces to highlight the Bank of Montreal’s role in prolonging one of the longest strikes in Toronto history.

The flash mob of dozens of demonstrators, including more than 25 Occupy Toronto dancers and singers, showed up at the main Bank of Montreal branch at King and Bay to challenge BMO to help end the 27-month strike at Infinity Rubber.

In a choreographed song and dance number set to the tune of “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5, the group urged onlookers inside the branch, and later on the street, to “Move from BMO” because of the bank’s role in funding an attack on workers.
