G-20 "Black Block" Used Once Again By Police Provocateurs & Police Over Reaction & Eroding Canadians Rights-'SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME" Real News

Given the powers the police have under this Public Property Security law at any time it can be instituted without the legislature or parliament's assent and they do not need to announce publicly that such a law is in effect-most the protesters and the people of Toronto did not know that such a draconian law was in effect.
So they did not know that wherever they were might be a no-go zone and this designation might change at any moment .

Are these police officers responding because they are physical jeopardy are the protesters in this clip destroying public property , they are supposedly in a Free-Speech Zone but they don't know the police can arbitrarily decide if a place is a free speech zone or not and they have the right to arrest people on any sort of pretext they can cook up-so next time will the police shoot to kill ???

G20 Summit Toronto Police Shooting at Peaceful Protesters & Passersby

Are extraordinary police powers and cuts to social safety net the G-20 plan for the future?

Violent Protest or Agent Provocateurs? Toronto G8-G20

Thousands of people took to the streets in Toronto, Canada to demonstrate against the twin G8 and G20 summits. Violent protesters caused riots according to the police, but one has to question from where the violence came from.
Agent provocateurs have been used many times in the past to incite violence amongst peaceful protesters, so that the police can move in arrest people and break up the protests even in free speech zones. The main stream media is also quick to report on the violence discrediting the 10s of thousands who are there without violence.

Police and security services have infiltrated black blocs with agents provocateurs. Allegations first surfaced after several demonstrations. At the 2001 G8 summit in Genoa, amongst the many complaints about the police there was mention of video footage in which "men in black were seen getting out of police vans near protest marches".
In August 2007, Quebec police admitted that "their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators." However, they were easily recognized by the genuine protesters as police, as they were still wearing their police-issue footwear.

Toronto Police Attack Peaceful G20 Protesters and Journalists

'I have lived in toronto for 32 years. have never seen a day like this' Journalist Steve Paikin's twitter account of protest By rabble staff ,www.rabble.ca, June 27, 2010

Journalist Steve Paikin, calling it an awful night for democracy, witnessed quite a bit in yesterday's demonstration(s), including being "escorted" away by police, and you can read his series of tweets right here.

Some highlights:

i have lived in toronto for 32 years. have never seen a day like this. shame on the vandals.

so the police just started arresting people. i stress, this was a peaceful, middle class, diverse crowd. no anarchists

the demonstration on the esplanade was peaceful. it was like an old sit in. no one was aggressive. and yet riot squad officers moved in.

i saw police brutality tonight. it was unnecessary. they asked me to leave the site or they would arrest me. i told them i was dong my job.

ppl standing around with hands in air. this was peaceful. it won't be now. unprovoked attack by police

Accusations of police ignored the basic rights of the 900 G20 detainees

Conditions for detainees at 629 Eastern Avenue are illegal, immoral and dangerous By Justin Giovannetti and Lex Gill June 28, 2010

Editor's note: Roughly 900 people have now been arrested, according to police, after a weekend of mayhem on the streets of Toronto during the G20 Summit. This is now the largest-ever mass arrest in Canadian history. No word on how many charges have been laid. Compare it to this: 497 people were arrested during the ‘October Crisis and the war measures act' in 1970, which came before Canada had a Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Complaints and charges against the police include:

People were held for up to 35 hours with a single meal
Inadequate water, as little as an ounce every 12 hours
Facilities over-capacity
Major delays in processing
Inconsistent charges
People put in solitary confinement
No pillows or mattresses to sleep
Unsanitary and unsafe living conditions
Police intimidation of released detainees
Non-stop light exposure/loss of natural light rhythm/sensory deprivation
Exposure to extreme cold
Sexual harassment of women and Queer people
Youth as young as 15 in adult cells
Denial of legal counsel
No phone call
Belongings stolen/damaged
Threats of assault/harassment
Obviously illegal civilian arrest
No access to medication or medical treatment

and so it goes,
