Toronto Condemns Police Violence
Monday, June 28th
5:30pm - 7:30 pm
Police Headquarters, 40 College Street (at Yonge Street)
Testimonies from people who've been brutalized by police
Over the past two days, police have rounded and arrested up hundreds of people. They have been denied access to lawyers, telephones, food and water, and held in deplorable conditions in makeshift steel cages. Many have been beaten in the streets and in their homes; shot at with rubber bullets and tear gas; some have been sent to hospital with severe injuries. Hundreds are still in custody as of Sunday night.
We need to get our people out. We need to take our city back from the armed fortress that it has been turned into.
We will let the police know that we will not tolerate the arrests, beatings and attempt to intimidate the people of Toronto. Our community stands with the people whose lives have been disrupted by the G20, and by police violence. We will demand that all those arrested be released, and released now!
