For 100 days now, tens of thousands of students have taken to the streets in the Canadian province of Quebec.

The source of their anger is an 82 per cent increase in post-secondary school tuition costs over seven years, which will progressively raise annual fees from about $2,200 to $4,000.

Since February the province has seen more than 200 demonstrations, mostly in the capital city of Montreal, leading to frequent clashes with the police. So far, almost 2,000 people have been detained.

On the night of May 21 alone, more than 300 demonstrators were arrested and 10 injured as students reacted to the enactement of an emergency law aimed at restricting protests. The law requires gatherings of more than 50 people to be declared to the police eight hours in advance. 

Al Jazeera takes a look at images from some of the key moments throughout the demonstrations.

After 11 weeks of protests, demonstrations escalated after attempts to coordinate talks between Quebec's government and student groups broke down, resulting in violent clashes with police and the prospect of snap elections.
