Video Coverage of the G20 Protests (“Welcome to ‘Harperland'”)

Here’s a few more videos that I hadn’t had time to post on here. These are courtesy of the Torontoist.

Video of cops refusing people entrance into a public park – from Torontoist’s G20 Live: Friday.

G20 – Allan Garden Protests from Torontoist on Vimeo.

Video regarding concerns for the deaf man that was arrested and put in handcuffs. Needed an interpreter that wasn’t a police officer. The next few videos are from Torontoist’s G20 Live: Saturday.

Were the cops just hanging back waiting before they moved in? We know the cops “expected” the Black Bloc and also the anarchists to come out. What’s the truth here?

G20 – Police Car on Fire – Yonge and Bay from Torontoist on Vimeo.

This video shows the smoke from the burning car in the distance and a group of police just hanging around. Waiting for specific orders? To me, looks like more spectators here than protesters.

Below you can see simple civilians and tourists trapped at Queen and Spadina. These were not protesters. Some of the tweets on my blog post just before this one indicate that some just wanted to go home after and were wanting to get arrested just to “get out of there”. This video was captured before the police charged the civilians. From Torontoist’s G20 Live: Sunday.

Here is the on-ground video of the police charge at the civilians (the same police charge that Meghann Millard captured on camera). Guess the police don’t like the anthem?

That’s all the videos from the Torontoist. I will post more if I find some good ones.
