Well, that was Toronto, Under Protest.
(“Where did they hold the G20 in June 2010?” “Toronto– Under Protest”)
It’s been a long and highly eventful six days since I started this mini-blog, Toronto. Protesters and anarchists, police and protesters, riots and arrests, rain and earthquake– we’ve had them all. And now the G20 leaders have left the city and Toronto is left licking its wounds and working out what went right and what went wrong.
Some important information is that the police presence, albeit relaxed, will remain in the city until Monday night. This seems sensible, given the number of arrestees yet to be processed and bailed (probably over 600)– no doubt there will be some solidarity protests at the jail and the courts. And after that– there will be legal battles and human rights complaints, and angry journalists asking angry questions.
I’ll keep adding to this blog here and there, and let me know if there’s any really good links I’ve overlooked, but I do actually have a real life that has been on hold since Tuesday and I need to see to it before it sees to me!
Here’s to returning to our lives and our Toronto, slowly but surely– and showing the world what Toronto is really like. Hint:
