POLICE BRUTALITY @ G20 TORONTO -- Sunday June 27 @ 3PM -- PRESS CONFERENCE Pt.1

by Gabriel Sinduda

See video
IN FRONT OF THE PARKDALE LIBRARY AT 1303 QUEEN ST W, at 3 PM

Representatives from the Toronto Community Mobilization Network and the Movement Defence Committee held a press conference to speak to increasing police intimidation and violence and the legal abnormalities and willful disregard for due process which were occurring on our streets..

And yet the mainstream, corporate bullshit news cons insisted--even after hearing unsettling details pertaining to scores of illegal detainments and arrests, blatant and systemic disregard for due process, brutal and unprovoked take-downs, and inhumane treatment of political prisoners--on following with questions such as "Do you condone the violence that tore up the city?" referring of course to the broken windows and burning police cars.

 
These people somehow can not understand what it means to have a civil population subjected to random and unaccountable police brutality. They don't stop to ask how can our charter freedoms be suspended without due parliamentary process.They seemingly don't understand that our hard-won rights were not meant to be provisional.

Or how it is that, when there is no G20 and no $1.2 BILLION security budget, you will not find windows smashed or police cars burning in the streets? Funny that.

This is a taste of the scum scrum that followed the press conference. Part 2 follows.
