For Immediate Release:
Press Release At least 4 community organizers currently being held as
political prisoners as G20 related police repression continues to
increase.

As the G20 meetings happen behind fortified fences, numerous long-time
community organizers working on issues ranging from migrant justice to
climate change to indigenous sovereignty are being targeted and arrested
by police.

At approximately 4:45 a.m., June 26, about 20 police officers raided a
Toronto home. They entered the house without consent through the back
door, aggressively dragging unclothed people from their beds, kicking
others who were asleep on the floor.

Police demanded that everyone provide names and identification. A number
of people repeatedly requested to view the warrant before complying with
police demands.

"I requested a warrant at least five times from the cop who refused to
show me his badge number, to which he said they have every legal right to
do what they're doing and they didn't have to show us anything," said
Tammy Kovich, a resident of the raided house.
