Occupy Toronto Protesters Quietly Gave Up Park Without Any Resistance.

I guess they did not believe in the movement that much, or else fear got the better of them, or maybe they just didn't have it in them, to fight for what they also believe in, whatever the cost to them. But the occupy Toronto protesters, put up no resistance, to the police eviction of them, from the St. James Park, in Toronto.

Some quietly pack up their tents and left, while others gave in to the police cajoling, on the day of the police raid on the park. The last of the group, that were showing a little bit of resistance, by chaining themselves to the yurt, that they also called a library, also gave up quietly, as the police moved in on them, with an eviction order, early Wednesday morning.

One of the protesters, was even quoted as saying, that, had they not given up voluntarily, "It could have ended very badly". Excuse me, but isn't that all part of the deal? No one hoped that it did, but if that did happen, so what? It's better to die for what you believe in, than to live in shame afterwards.

Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford and the rest of the Canadian government, also had no trouble, convincing the occupy Toronto protesters, to give up on their ideas, or their attempts, to reform the Canadian government and to bring about any kind of social change, that is also so badly needed, in that country. The message from Ford and the others, were that the government was not going to change, so the occupy protesters, needed to accept it and moved on. Sadly, they also did.

To me and the rest of the public, they should have also put up a fight and let the Canadian government, also do whatever it wanted. Let the police have resort to brute force also, if they wanted to, but they should not have budged. This was mostly the same, from other occupy Canada protesters, in other cities across Canada.
Although in my opinion, none of them acted as badly, as the occupy Toronto protesters, in giving up totally, to the demands of the police and also the Canadian government and especially to the demands of Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford.

Rob Ford's side kick and ever present shadow, Georgio Mammoliti, who also seem to have some big ideas of his own and not the least, of becoming Toronto's next mayor, also said pointedly, that the occupy Toronto protesters, "Should all be arrested" and that "They should all pack up their one bag, that they have also brought, to the park and leave". Georgio Mammoliti is also a hater against gays, communists and anyone else, who also does not fit in, with his own personal ideas.

Rob Ford and Georgio Mammoliti and the rest of the government, had also worked very diligently, to see that the occupy Toronto protesters, leave the St. James Park, which is also owned by the St. James Cathedral church, in Toronto. In Canada there also does not seem to be a separation of Church and State, for the Reverend Douglas Stoute, of the St. James Cathedral, in Toronto, also decided to evict the occupy protesters, from the side of the park, which is also owned by the church and has openly refused to give them any sanctuary. The church, along with the city, had both served the occupy Toronto protesters, with eviction notices and ordered them to leave all of the park.

The Reverend Douglas Stoute, of the St. James Cathedral in Toronto, also openly backed its decision, to evict the occupy protesters, by also saying publicly, that it also sided with the actions government, right or wrong.

To some people, there was no heart, in the movement at all and you have to also wonder, if those occupy Toronto protesters, who were also commenting to the media and talking openly of giving up, were also not police agents and agent provocateurs, who were also planted there, to also make the movement look bad. It is a very common tactic of the police, to destabilized a movement, by planting their agents among them, to spread disinformation and to disrupt the group, or worst, to also put up no resistance to the police, or the government's attacks, on those groups.

This also seem to be most likely what happened with the occupy Toronto and the occupy Canada movement altogether. And To also justify their actions, some of them are also saying, that the occupy Canada movement, is also not a movement at all, but an idea only. And that the Canadian government, also cannot change that idea, which the protesters also have. If this sounds confusing, to them and also to the rest of us, that is because it really is. Personally, I also believe in an occupy Canada movement, to also bring about the necessary changes, in that government.

Maybe they should also learn from the actions of other occupy protesters, around the world and not give in so easily, if they also really want their voices to be heard. For the occupy Toronto protesters, let the police drag them from their place of occupation, if they have to and also arrest them. But not to also listen to them, to give up and moved on quietly. They did exactly what the autocratic government, also wanted and now it is going to be even harder, to convince that government, or anyone else, that they are also serious enough about this change, that you are also talking about. If that is to happen, they will also have to back up your words also, with their actions, because no one really respects a quitter.

The occupy Canada movement that began three weeks ago, on October 13, 2011, in cities across Canada and as an offshoot of the occupy wall street movement, is not over, despite the Canadian government crack down, on protesters. Police has begun to remove protesters from the parks that they have been occupying and arresting them to send the message that the government will not tolerate any challenges to its current system of doing things. You would not exactly call its actions democratic either.

This latest action by the Canadian government is also part of the latest trend by other totalitarian governments, currently and in other countries, with the same agenda.

In some Canada cities recently, such as Vancouver, London, Ontario and others, the police has come out in large forces to evict the protesters from the parks that they had been occupying, in order to send a messge to the Canadian government, that they are also fed up with its actions, concerning the government's policies. The movement's slogan "We are the nintey nine" protest, is still going strong, despite these latest setbacks, which is also a clear infringement by the Canadian government upon their rights as well and which is also designed to prevent the people from protesting peacefully, or to have a peaceful assembly, as they also have a right to do.

These same governments including Canada, has turn an about face towards this movement where it has been pretending to respect the rights of the people to peacefully protest for changes that they believe in, or to peacefully assemble.

The Canadian government has also began to use brute force to shut the movement down and I say that this is also undemocratic on its part. In London Ontario, the protesters were taken away in police vans despite not putting up any resistance to the police who has forcefully removed them from the park that they had been occupying.

Toronto's mayor Rob Ford is also echoing the same sentiments towards the occupy Toronto protesters. But Rob Ford is wrong, again. The people will not give up so easily. The Occupy Toronto protesters, are also gearing up for the new challenge, that has now been put forth by the mayor and to remain at the St. James Park that they have been occupying for the last three weeks despite the recent threats to evict them from the park by the mayor.

As for Rob Ford, he is now starting to show his true colors and we now know which side he is really on. He is certainly not for the nintey nine percent, that much is also clear. This is coming from the same mayor Rob Ford, who also recently admitted publicly to using the F-word to members of the public that he was angry with. This is Rob Ford's weak apology, "Maybe I shouldn't have used the F-word, I appologize....".

According to the CBC, which also was the reason for the mayor's outburst when they tried to interview the Toronto mayor at his home for one of their shows and for which the mayor also called the police to have them removed from off his property, the mayor Rob Ford was said to have also screamed at the 911 dispatchers "You bitches! Don't you fucking know? I'm Rob fucking Ford, the mayor of the city!". The Toronto mayor also gave at least two other citizens the "finger", in recent months and while driving and talking on his cell phone. Something which is also against the law and which apparently do not also apply to him, in this case.

For the Canadian government and its police to try to evict the protesters from the parks or any where else that they also want to occupy is also simply a gross violation of their rights to openly opposed the actions of the Canadian government. They are also protesting against some serious and genuine concerns by the Canadian government in regards to those rights, which it has also slowly but surely been taking away from them. The protesters are not willing to accept the temporary solutions that the government is also offering to them and which most of the public is also willing to compromised on, in terms of their diminished rights. They also want more accountability on the part of the Canadian govenment. Since the government is really the people and should also be making its policies around that issue, the protesters has every right to also demand that it does. The occupy Canada movement is not going away anytime soon.
