Peaceful G20 Protest Marred by Minor Violence – Muzzles true voices of peace and important messages – VIDEO – Cornwall Ontario – June 27, 2010

Cornwall ON – There were two protests at the G20 in Toronto Saturday June 26th.  The first, the largest, completely peaceful.   There was structure.  There was a time frame.   And then there were those that it looks like were not interested in a rally, but as they rarely get play off opportunities in Toronto had their own Montreal style riot.

Apparently many of those that burnt the police car were from Labelle Province.

AMAZING MUST SEE PICS FROM THE TORONTO STAR

Frankly I’m so saddened that important and real messages that the world needs to hear; not just the leaders, but the voters, are being muzzled by this utter nonsense.

You can see as I walk into the march, and through it the real tenor of the protest.

People wanted to dance.  They wanted to vent their emotions in a positive and productive way.

And there were some powerful ideas that we probably should all consider like the message from Oxfam.

And from Leaders like Kumi Naidoo from Greenpeace and Sid Ryan from the Ontario Federation of Labour.

Sadly those messages.  Those peaceful thousands are being drowned out by violence and petty evil.

And if montebello is of any reference…. I’m sure the violence has been started by under cover agents…

What was Harper thinking of in locating the G20 in Toronto? Answer: himself. The ultimate cost of his vanity will be $1.4 billion plus millions in damage…all payable by us.

Lock up the press, block live camera views, hold innocent people for 7 to 18 hours without providing heat, water, food, medical services etc. Convicted criminals are treated better.

United we stand divided we fall, I see a lot of division in this topic. The only focus depicted here is a dislike for our leader yet all for different reasons. What will that resolve? We would have nothing more than a new leader redirecting our monies and beliefs into their mold. However will it improve health care?, Will it decrease government spending? Will they enforce the green planet initiative??? ( on that note it may not be all that good, seeing the green imitative is currently nothing more then a economic stimulus). What do you think the liberals or… Read more »

The Black Bloc is you. The Black Bloc, the thousands of protesters, the violence at the G-20, the fence, the diversity of tactics – that’s all the fault of the grown ups. I think you’re to blame. You’ve helped create a democratic inequity. You taught your kids to not vote, to not participate in council meetings, to not learn how to talk back to authority, to not join Riding associations. You taught your kids to unwittingly conspire against democratic methods. Kids under thirty simply don’t vote. In fact in Cornwall itself hardly 60% of the entire population voted and it’s… Read more »

When you vote in an election, some politicians don’t get to listen anymore. Thats the way you get rid of the dead wood.
