Investigating the G20: "You Should Have Stayed At Home" Documentary (Video)
Video from: YouTube.com
"They were the most unlikely of troublemakers. There were thousands of ordinary citizens on the streets at Toronto G20 Summit marching peacefully until the police closed in and shut them down. Many had gone downtown simply to see what was going on, only to find themselves forcibly dragged away by police and locked up for hours in a makeshift detention center without timely access to lawyers or medical treatment.
Itís been eight months since the G20 and the iconic images are still with us ó burning police cars, rampaging mobs, the massive security presence that according to the official story is all that stood between Canadaís largest city and chaos. But thatís not the whole story of Torontoís G20. Astonishing new images caught on camera are now emerging and they expose a troubling new picture of what happened to hundreds of ordinary citizens caught in the huge police dragnet during those three highly-charged days last June.
Gillian Findlay presents a revealing new street-level perspective of what happened when thousands of police were deployed in downtown Toronto and instructed to do what was necessary to ensure the wall around the G20 Conference Centre was never breached. Exclusive eyewitness video obtained by the fifth estate brings to light startling images captured on cellphones and minicams by the innocent bystanders who found themselves on the wrong side of all that G20 "order." In a rare television interview, Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair explains why police took the actions they did.
On this edition of the fifth estate: the summit from the street, and the people who never dreamed it could happen to them. The stories youíll hear will raise questions about what protest means in this country and what the limits to dissent have become."
"People willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both." -Ben Franklin
Ed Note: Even though this video is entitled "You Should Have Stayed Home", these images and testimonies demonstrate that "staying home" is exactly what the elite and enforces would have you do, and is a display of apathy or implied permission for the outrageous actions of the Canadian police/security forces (and any governmental officials who permitted these behaviours) that weekend.
It should be noted that although the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation has aired this documentary and is suggesting (without saying outright) the police actions were illegal, at the time of the G20 the CBC was highlighting the aggressiveness of the vandals, looping the film of destruction of the police car and local businesses, and exploiting film of darkly dressed youth throwing rocks and other objects.
One might question their reporting, and its effects.
Now that the political climate of the G20 events has changed, the CBC is insinuating itís disturbed by police brutality, and on the side of "right".
