(Toronto, ON) – In order to mark the one year anniversary of the G20 summit in Toronto, the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA), Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL), Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) and Council of Canadians are hosting a large fundamental freedoms festival at Queen’s Park on Saturday June 25, 2011. The organizers are calling upon like-minded organizations and individuals to join them for G20:REDUX on June 25 to show our collective determination to uphold and protect our rights.
June 25, 2011 will mark exactly one year since the G20 Summit in downtown Toronto, which saw the biggest mass arrests in Canadian peace time history and an unprecedented degree of infringement of individual civil liberties and fundamental freedoms. These issues have not been resolved. Much remains to be done to shed light on what really did happen during that fateful summer weekend, why it happened and ensuring that it never happens again.
