A protester talks with a police officer at the 'Occupy Montreal' site as authorities move in and close down the camp, Montreal, Canada, Friday, November 25, 2011.
Canadian police have forcefully dismantled the encampment of 'Occupy' protesters who had camped for six weeks in the heart of Montreal's financial district.
Several protesters tied themselves to their tents in the Victoria Square encampment in the last stand against an imminent eviction, the CBC reported on Friday.
Police eventually tore down the tents to force the protesters out of the site.
The full-scale eviction comes one day after the protesters were given a second notice that they had to vacate the square.
The protesters had been negotiating with the city officials and hoped to be able to remain one more night ahead of a rally set for the weekend.
In Edmonton, meanwhile, three people were arrested after the police moved in to put an end to an encampment at a downtown city park.
The 'Occupy Montreal' movement is part of a global campaign against what the protesters term corporate greed.
The Occupy movement emerged in the US after a group of demonstrators gathered in New York's financial district on September 17 to protest the unjust distribution of wealth in the country and the excessive influence of major corporations on US policies.
Despite police crackdowns and mass arrests, the Occupy Movement, which grew out of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement, has now spread to major US cities as well as to Australia, Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Portugal and France.
