Thousands protest over G20 arrestsCanada
The Windsor Star
Thousands of protesters marched through Toronto, Montreal and Halifax Saturday demanding an independent public inquiry into what they say were overly aggressive police actions that suppressed their civil liberties during the G20 summit in Toronto last month.
Representatives from Greenpeace, Amnesty International, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the Ontario chapter of the Canadian Federation of Students joined in the rally. "Tens of thousands of people demonstrated peacefully to demand action be taken by the world´s most powerful leaders on climate change, global poverty, maternal health, Indigenous peoples rights and the privatization of education," Hamid Osman, Ontario representative of the CFS, said in a news statement.
"Despite our rights to express ourselves and raise important concerns, many of us had our rights stripped away, and were subjected to police violence and arbitrary detention."
More than 1,000 people were arrested during the G20 weekend, the largest mass arrest in Canadian history.
