    To look back at the first time we covered student protests in Quebec a few months ago and to see where the movement is now is astonishing. Movements across South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and North America are continuing to develop and  accelerate at a rate we can hardly keep up with. Simultaneously, more and more people are becoming aware of the magnitude of these social movements, and that is only fueling the solidarity between these massive international social movements.

    June has not led to any conclusions, only more possibilities. The People’s Record is excited to continue to track global social movements with our bi-monthly global round-ups and our daily reporting of protest news.

    So far the month of June has been the busiest month in 2012 yet for global protest-movement news. Here’s a list of some of the protests and movements that shook the global capitalist system in the month of June:

    • Police detained some 20 brave activists who were protesting outside Russia’s parliament where deputies debated a Kremlin-backed bill to hike fines for violations during rallies, a proposal the opposition says is aimed at smothering dissent.
    • The “Dream Walkers,” undocumented youth who are walking from California to Washington, D.C. began a sit-in at Obama’s Colorado campaign headquarters that would continue for days with the students implementing a hunger strike into their protest two days later.
