More on G20 Police Brutality

Last week we played a video of Amy Miller of the Alternative Media Centre recounting the sexual harassment, assault, and threats endured by women who were arrested during the G20 protests. If you haven’t heard that yet, it is important to listen to and spread. We will put a trigger warning on it though because the material is upsetting. CBC also has a collection of firsthand accounts up on their site which once again include strip searches, police brutality, and clear attempts by the police to put a chill on activists (and those passing by) and make Canadian afraid to engage in their basic right to speaking out and impacting decisions that will affect them and those around them. If you have a story to share, please feel free to include it in the comment section.
