More than 500 demonstrators amassed in Quebec City, north-east Canada, for mostly peaceful protests on day-one of the G7 summit of world leaders on Thursday.

Waving banners, lighting flares and setting flags alight, protesters from various groups marched through the city for two hours.

Flanked by armed riot police wearing heavy armour, protesters shouting slogans thronged the streets outside Quebec City’s convention centre, where the summit is being held.

The protests, involving anarchists, anti-capitalists and environmentalists, were largely peaceful, but there was some trouble and tension between police.

Quebec City police said they arrested two people on Thursday and several journalists covering the protests were harassed, according to CBC.

More protests billed as a “day of disturbances” by Anti-G7 Resistance Network are planned to take place outside the venue on Friday.

Protesters are expected to gather from 7:30am (local time) in Quebec City’s Beauport borough to show their dissent to the summit and what it represents.

Anti-G7 Resistance Network has been tight-lipped about the activities planned, but bulletins released by the group suggest its members are prepared to engage in civil disobedience.

In a statement on its website, Anti-G7 Resistance Network said the its objective is to “denounce the imperialist, colonialist and anti-environmentalist nature of the G7 summit”.
