Canadian police have arrested over 900 people in Toronto in a police crackdown on protests at the G20 summit. Riot police used batons, plastic bullets and tear gas for the first time in the city’s history. More than 19,000 security personnel were deployed in Toronto, and a nearly four-mile-long security wall was erected around the G20 summit site at the Toronto Convention Center. The security price tag for the summit is estimated at around $1 billion. Franklin Lopez & Dawn Paley of the Vancouver Media Co-op filed this report from the streets of Toronto.

wikked vid folks!!!!!!  the

wikked vid folks!!!!!!  the resistance to this police state bullshit continues in toronto and all across turtle island.


It's sooo funny in this "democratic state" that they(the bankers & corporations) need this security when if this was a democratic state every citizen would have an eqaul say in what goes on... Then you wouldn't have the problem of the have, and have nots pitted against eachother in a capitalist economy! Which runs off of making money off of other people at the poorer less wealthy persons expense since they have to sell there life away to be able to buy the things which they need or think they need... F*CK THE CAPITALIST ECONOMY!!!

Just watched it again and am moved to tears.

Lots of healing and resisting PEOPLE!

Such a great cause to put ourselves, and time, on the line to fight for the future of democracy, equality and social justice for all.
