[OPIRG-EVENTS] Defend the right to Dissent - Sept. 13 and 14
OPIRG-Carleton and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers present:
Defending the Right to Dissent
Support the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty
On June 15th, the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) organized a
demonstration in front of the Queen's Park in Toronto. During the rally a
full-scale riot, provoked by police actions, broke out. A large number of
protesters were injured and arrested. Later, OCAP organizers John Clarke,
Gaetan Heroux, Stefan Pilipa and Patricia Lilley were arrested. The charges
and the restrictive bail conditions imposed on these activists are a
frightening example of the growing criminalization of the democratic right
to political protest that is taking place.
Attend these events and hear first hand what took place on June 15th, the
police crackdown that followed, and ways in which to support the charged
protesters and the anti-poverty struggle.
