Toronto Protest of Police Violence, mass arrests and encampment evictions

Over two hundred people rallied at Toronto City Hall on July 26 to protest police violence and the arrest of more than two dozen people a week earlier.  The brutal cop assault on defenders of an encampment of homeless folks involved the wanton use of truncheons, pepper spray, charges on horseback, punches and choke holds.  Among the arrested at 14 Division police station was Corey David, the Socialist Action candidate in the city by-election in Scarborough-Agincourt in January.

Thanks to Kiri V. for the photos and a video of Socialist Action remarks to the July 26 rally. Participants purchased some 30 of the “Disarm, De-Fund, Disband the Police” buttons produced by SA.
