Press for Truth Reports on the G20 Toronto
On Sunday May 2nd, Press For Truth members Dan Dicks, Bryan Law, and Steve Davies went to 4 different locations to report on the upcoming G20 summit, including the Metro Toronto Convention Center (site of the summit), Trinity Bellwoods Park ((formerly) a designated free speech zone), The Toronto Film Studios (temporary holding facility for arrests made during the G20) and also the Financial District.
While shooting footage in the financial district camera man and PFT reporter Bryan Law was approached by private security who asked for his ID even though he was on a public sidewalk and was doing nothing illegal. When Bryan refused to submit his identification Toronto Police were called and Bryan was placed under arrest and illegally searched and detained under the pretext of heightened security due to the upcoming G20 summit.
