TORONTO'S G20 SUMMIT, IS ALSO PLAGUED WITH POLICE BRUTALITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSE

Image
Toronto has hosted the G20 Summit, that has now come and gone, but the actions of the police, in abusing the rights of both the protesters and non protesters alike, will also remained, as one of the other highlights, of the summit. Canada, is also now officially recognized, as also being a police state, in the eyes of many. Not that this has surprised some people, who has known this all along. That the police has had too much power and are also willing to abuse that power, as they have also demonstrated at the G8/G20 summit, recently. Many human rights abuse also occurred,
in regards to their actions as well. Some of their actions included the following:
The police were randomly carrying out illegal searches on people on the street and if they could not produced any identification, they were also arrested on the spot. Those arrested, were also denied access to a lawyer, or even to make the usually, mandatory, telephone call. People detained because of the protest, were also denied acces…

TORONTO IS UNDER A VIRTUAL SIEGE, BY THE POLICE AND THE GOVERNMENT

What is the real reason for the Toronto police, city officials and the Canadian government, to shut down a busy cosmopolitan city, such as Toronto, and also putting thousands of people and businesses out of their homes and workplace, just to also accommodate some world leaders? What are the real issues at stake here? It could surely not be, because ordinary people, are simply exercising their democratic rights, to protest against that government's actions? Is that any reason for the Canadian government, to go to such lengths, to try and stop them?. If the Canadian government is really interested in making amends in regards to its own human rights violations, why not allow the people to protest on those issues, as they also have a right to do? I don't believe that the G20/G8 summit in Toronto, on June 25-27, has anything to do with the protection of human rights, by those leaders. In fact, it is quite the opposite. And if the actions of the Canadian government, recently, in sup…

CANADA SPENDS 1.2 BILLION DOLLARS ON SECURITY AT THE UPCOMING G20 SUMMIT

Image
As the Canadian government prepares to host the G8/G20 summit of world leaders, activists and social justice advocates, are also preparing to protest, loud and clear, about the role of the 20 richest nations, including Canada, and their means also, of continuing with the global exploitation of peoples, within their own countries and around the world. The astronomical amount of money, that the Canadian government, is also willing to spend, on the security of the summit leaders, has also angered many Canadians, who also believed that the money could have also been better spent, on improving the economy and also in helping the poor and homeless, to name just a few of the issues, that are also on the agenda, of many of the protesters. Many of whom are also pushing for more answers, from the government, in regards to the cost, to the Canadian taxpayers, who are the ones that are paying for all of this and who will also see very little of their rights, either protected or represented at th…

Condemnation for Israel And Netanyahu's Hasty Retreat From Canada

The world has united in its condemnation of the Israeli government and also against its recent actions, against the Palestinians in Gaza. As Israeli commandos stormed a flotilla ship, bound for Gaza and also carrying international aid, to the Palestinians, the Israeli government has also shown, its barbaric actions, by attacking the ship and killing at least 10 civilian aid workers and activists, on board the ship, that was also in international waters, and should also have been safe, from such an attack by the Isreali government. The international outcry, that has also followed the Israeli government's actions, was also understandable and has also confirmed, that, the world will not sit by silently, any longer, at these human rights violations by the Israeli government. It didn't seemed to matter, also, that its government actions, has also become odious to the rest of the world, because of its decisions, to, repeatedly attack, a defenseless people and also in denying them t…

This information was also relevant, to the hearing and it is also believed, that, they have also acted together, on this, in order, to also have the charges dismissed.
