A group of students is camping in front of the CEGEP du Vieux Montreal. 

It's the second CEGEP in a week to join the "occupy everything" movement. Last week, students set up about 40 tents in front of the CEGEP de Saint-Laurent.

On Tuesday morning, a smaller group of students set up about 10 tents near the corner of Ontario Street and Hôtel-de-Ville Avenue. 

Demonstrators are trying to raise awareness for a wide range of causes.

They strung up several banners, which railed against the pillaging of the environment, the theft of native land, the energy summit and capitalism. 

One banner read: "They can take our freedom but they will never take our mini-putt."

Students refused to be interviewed, because of a general mistrust of journalists.
