1000s march in solidarity with G20 arrested and to denounce police terror

SUGGESTED SCRIPT:  On July 1st, several thousand protesters marched through the streets of montreal to denounce the over 900 arrested and thousands more terrorized at the hands of Toronto police officers, before and during the recent G20 meeting. We spoke with several marchers, all of whom declared the importance of reclaiming to streets in the face of police repression.

We will hear from Scott Weinstein (member of Independent Jewish Voices), Lela and Teagan (mom and daughter), Adil Charkaoui (criminalized by Canada for 7-years on a Security Certificate), Bita Eslami (Immigrant Workers Centre), and Amir Khadir (Québec Solidaire, MLA in Quebec’s National Assembly).
