    THE LAST 2 ACTIVISTS FROM QUEBEC ARE FREE !!!

    The deputy of Quebec Solidaire paid the bail of one of the activist, it is very rare to see political party act like that. I now have a little bit more esteem for Quebec Solidaire.

    Arrested for bubble HAHAHAHAHAHAH.... holy shit..... i would say this is the most stupid reason for an arrestation i ever seen but oh well, i can't say that since some people were arrested for absolutly NO REASON, some people going to work were arrested and some people from quebec who were just driving a car with a quebec license were arrested....

    The cop girl looks sexy. I'd beat her with "my big truncheon". Ok i know, i'm just being dumb and someone will accuse me of sexism. I need some sleep.

    YOUTUBE VIDEO SHOWS UNDERCOVER AGENTS ASSAULTING MAN FILMING THEM AT G-20 PROTEST

    Police "agents provocateurs" attempt to infiltrate family-friendly march in Montreal; MPP Amir Khadir denounces police tricks

    Montreal, 3 July 2010 -- A man arrested at Thursday's march against police repression around the G20 Summit has come forward to reveal that he was assaulted by undercover "agents provocateurs" when he attempted to film them.

    While 1,000 Montrealers, including many parents with young children, marched to denounce the abusive police treatment of G20 protestors, Montreal police apparently attempted to introduce agent provocateurs into the march. The provocateurs were spotted trying to enter the march on Sherbrooke Street, but were forced out by attentive march organizers. Two videos of the group of provocateurs were posted on youtube on Friday:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCb7YlnX ... re=related
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLFS1Xarysg.

    "They were big guys, looking like thugs. In fact, they looked very much like the police provocateurs who were caught on video carrying rocks at the protest against the Security and Prosperity Partnership in Montebello, Quebec in August 2007," stated Scott Weinstein, who decided to bicycle over to film the group when informed of their presence.

    When he caught up to them, the provocateurs were walking one block east of the march, on St-Dominique, parallel to most of the children and babies who tended to be near the end of the march.

    "The police had no business playing these games and threatening violence, especially when so many children were present," explained Weinstein, a health care worker and photographer. "Their strategy is totally unacceptable."

    The group quickly surrounded Weinstein, grabbed him and attempted to take his camera from him. He refused to let go. They dragged Weinstein to the sidewalk and kneed him until he could no longer hold onto the camera. "I knew they wanted to erase the evidence, especially since I didn't hide I was filming them. I made sure not to touch them, instead I tried to protect myself in a fetal position and screamed for help."

    Janet Cleveland, a psychologist, was leaving the march and returning home when she heard screams. "I saw 5 or 6 burly young guys dressed in black forming a tight circle around someone, holding his hands behind his back and pushing his face to the pavement while he screamed for help. It was scary - my first thought was that they might be skinheads beating somebody up. There was no way to tell the difference. But they told me that they were police
    and that I should stay away."

    Cleveland stayed to watch as Weinstein was forced into a police car and then alerted Quebec Solidaire MPP Amir Khadir, who also attended the march. Khadir intervened with the police immediately after the arrest to denounce the arbitrary, abusive and illegal character of Weinstein's arrest.

    "Quebec citizens expect the police to respect the democratic rights of people who demonstrate", stated Khadir. "Dissent and opposition are not only permitted in this country, but must also be protected and celebrated. I am particularly proud of people like Scott who protest peacefully to denounce the abuse and violence of police repression in Toronto. It is unacceptable that Montreal police use the same tricks that led to the excesses of the security agencies in Toronto," he stated.

    Three police ethics commission reports in April 2010 found that filming the police is legal.

    Weinstein was released the same evening but faces bogus charges of assault with a weapon. According to a police spokesperson, his bicycle was the weapon. However, as events revealed, Weinstein's real "weapon" was his camera: when police returned it to him, all video and photo material had been erased.

    Luckily for Weinstein, a bystander caught the incident on camera and posted it to youtube. Weinstein is trying to get in touch with this person.

    Thanks for this thread and many posts. Sorry I did not jump in earlier. I wanted to
    add some input and links (see below) that counters the agents provocateurs myth. Especially the first video posted which tries to make the link between black boots/shoes to agents provocateurs. I think it's laughable.
    I find it hard to disagree with the analysis and evidence that shows that police lost control of the situation and were overcome by a few hundred militants that torched police cars and did over $1 million worth of damage to banks and corporate property. There are reports from police that they had no idea what was going on, didn't know how to react, and that the multiple layers of their command structure resulted in orders not coming down fast enough to deal with the roving black bloc. Now that's not to say that police didn't have infiltrators in all of the crowds during every day of protest action, but by no means does that imply that they let the destruction happen, or even less likely, facilitate it.

    Kind of unrelated, but a lesson to be learned from all of this, is that in future mass actions, folks are really going to have to protect themselves and mask their identity. In Toronto, we saw members of the community who weren't part of a black bloc come out and take out their frustrations, undoubtedly due to prior and ongoing police repression in their communities, on the abandoned police cars. Then after the summit, the cops went on their witchhunt with the assistance of the banks (that image enhancement shit from the cameras) and the corporate fucking media. Tons of people were busted, even those that had protected their identity that day. This type of resistance will inevitably draw more people into taking action, but folks have to be prepared for the tactics, tools, and resources that the state levies against us.

    Bullshit. In every single big protest in quebec and canada there were agent provocateurs and it was proven multiple times with serious proofs, police even admitted it. Just inform yourself.

    Police cars were left in the middle of the protest during hours and hours. The police left old cars there, they wanted the protesters to burn them down so they could show it to the media who played it over and over again to justify the spending of $1.5 billion in security.

    $1 million worth of damage is really discutable, and anyway who cares ? the target were banks and big corporations.

    What the fuck now you are defending the police ? Stop trying to find reasons to justify their actions, there is no fucking reason you can arrest someone for making bubble and the likes. Inform yourself, there were over 1200 arrests, most of them were people walking on the streets, non-protesters going to work, journalists, members of elected political parties, even old ladies....
    And of course they let the destruction happen, it's at their advantage so they can justify the repression. They let cop cars in the middle of a protest during over 2 hours waiting for protesters to burn it down.

    I am very informed. Joining in and echoing the speculator chorus doesn't make you informed.
    Did you check the independent media reports that I posted?
    These reports are from people embedded in the crowd, not from conspiracy theory speculators or corporate-run media outlets who only regurgitate faulty police reports and liberal reformist "good protestor" garbage.

    Why are you defending and attempting to lend credibility to the mainstream corporate and state-run media?
    Why are you giving the cops so much credit? There is NO EVIDENCE that they left their cars. There IS video evidence of black bloc storming the cars and the police getting out and running for their lives.The police were overwhelmed by a strong and highly mobile force of urban militants... There may have been some APs, but they weren't all cops, and they certainly didn't facilitate anything. The youtube video from Toronto that attempts to prove that the black bloc were cops only points to the fact that they were wearing black shoes. It is naive to believe that those smashing the windows were cops based on that evidence. In Montebello, there were images of the underside of three agents provocateurs' boots... which were police issued. And these pigs were already ousted by the crowd.

    So yes, agents provocateurs were ousted immediately from the crowd at Montebello. They were also ousted in this year's anti-police brutality rally in Montreal and spotted in the solidarity rally in Montreal after the G20. Of course they use them. But they are easy to spot as has been proven in the past and present. I can't believe one would think that the cops are almighty and all powerful that they can control all facets of the movement, take over the black bloc in Toronto, and orchestrate the entire thing... This sounds like Alex Jones conspiracy....

    Perhaps what I was saying was unclear. But about leaving the cars, please check the link I posted. And is this something you saw personally or are you relying on corporate media reports and the nonsense spouted by the likes of Judy Rebick and Murray Dobbin? Even Naomi Klein apologized for her ridiculous comments following the action. Perhaps you also believed the shit spouted by David Eby and the like in Vancouver during the Olympic protests..?? Anyways, the city was chaotic that day, with numerous roving protests that were spontaneous and converged on many different points, involving over ten thousand people (one source says 40,000), and police responding and moving around to try and counter them.

    I'm not defending the police. I'm trying to show their incompetence. You are defending the police by saying they created this entire thing. There was massive repression because they were humiliated and defeated in that moment. 19,000 pigs and $1 billion and the Toronto cop shop was smashed to shit while they stood in front of it and watched.... This shows that if you are willing to take direct action and confront the coward pigs, you have a much better chance than by sitting down with your back to them, which shows weakness and capitulation. The pigs are cowards and they attacked vulnerable crowds... they didn't dare engage the black bloc. Plus, they couldn't catch them !!!
    Also, it is important to try and understand the police command structure and the many layers of command... they are too slow and incompetent, taking orders from the top at a base outside Huntsville. In this situation, they were no match for BB tactics. And don't forget, police were beating people and arresting people at gun point even before the Saturday action.

    In sum, I think you are doing the movement a disservice by downplaying its strengths, placing your faith in the corporate media and conspiracy theorist gurus, and by praising the police by conveying an incorrect message that they are all powerful and have the ability to control everything we do.

    But thanks for your comments, I certainly didn't expect them.

    Toronto G20 State Repression Goes International With the Arrest and Request for Extradition of American Activist

    FEBRUARY 22, 2013

    On Thursday, February 14th, at 6 o’clock in the morning, federal marshals arrested an American activist, Joel Bitar, in his New York, NY home on a provisional arrest warrant issued by the US Attorney’s office, acting on a foreign extradition request from Canadian authorities. The complaint against Joel cites 26 counts, almost all relating to property damage that occurred during the G20 summit protests in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in June 2010. After a temporary delay in court proceedings—due to an outbreak of lice in the federal prison where Joel and many others have the misfortune of being held, the weekend, and a national holiday on Monday—Joel went before Magistrate Judge, Gabriel W. Gorenstein, on Tuesday, February 19th, to determine whether he would be granted bail as he awaits his extradition hearing in the United States. During the proceedings, a general timeline of the actions of the Canadian and US authorities was established.

    Joel was arrested in Toronto, along with a little over 1,100 other people, during the G20 protests on June 26 and 27th 2010, in what is thought to be the largest mass arrest in Canada’s history. Joel was processed and released without any charges. In December 2010, lead G20 investigator, Det. Sgt. Gary Giroux, announced to various Canadian news agencies that Canada was seeking the extradition of three Americans for damages amounting to $500,000. Soon after, Joel retained the services of an attorney, Martin Stolar, who contacted Giroux. According to Stolar’s testimony on Tuesday, Giroux confirmed that Joel was a suspect and they were investigating him on charges relating to property destruction. The Assistant U.S. Attorney said that the original complaint against Joel—which details the charges—was prepared in October 2011. Canadian authorities then spent some time going through their image and video database from the G20, as well as obtaining Facebook posts that Joel allegedly made regarding the G20 summit in Canada, and submitted a request for extradition in October 2012 which jumpstarted a winding process involving the US Embassy in Washington DC, the State Department, and the Justice Department’s Office of International Affairs. It is worth noting that in this time period beginning in December 2010 up until his arrest in February 2013, Joel traveled overseas several times, and was not arrested, although he was stopped by the Department of Homeland Security and questioned. Joel’s response was that they should speak to his lawyer.

    Establishing this timeline of events took up the longest part of the proceedings, and there was much back-and-forth between the Assistant U.S. Attorney—who opposed bail, pressed US legal obligations in respect to treaties with Canada, and claimed that the allegations against Joel, which mostly relate to property damage, are extraditable offenses that endangered Canadian citizens—and Joel’s current attorney, Philip Weinstein—who argued several special circumstances (such as delay, the political nature of the charges, and community ties) that allow for bail in extradition cases. After some consideration, Judge Gorenstein granted bail on the basis of the special circumstance of “delay” (it had been over two years since Det. Sgt. Giroux had spoken with Martin Stolar, and alleged Joel’s involvement) and acknowledged Joel’s low risk of flight. The stipulations of the bail are steep: Joel was granted bail to the tune of $500,000—a little tit-for-tat—as well as house arrest with electronic monitoring. He was released into the custody of his parents on Wednesday, February 20th. His next court date—which is his actual extradition hearing—is currently scheduled for March 20th.

    For those who may be unfamiliar, the G20 is a collection of finance ministers and central bank governors from nineteen powerful countries plus the European Union—along with representatives of international financial institutions. At G20 “summits” these figures are joined by top politicians to discuss their ongoing exploitation of the planet, its people and resources. Downtown Toronto was placed under heavy police control during the summit and protesters were arbitrarily arrested and held in a large film-studio, that was converted into a prison, specifically for the purpose of crushing dissent. It is well known that many were brutalized, insulted, or sexually humiliated by Canadian police, outraging large sectors of Canadian society. Protest organizers were attacked by police in their homes, arrested and charged for attending meetings and discussing protest plans.

    The extradition of a protester for property damage is almost unprecedented in the histories of both the United States and Canada. Considering that state repression has been ratcheted ever higher in both countries over the past several years, this latest development comes with little surprise. Governments claim that property damage somehow endangers the lives of citizens, all the while their police and military forces brutalize and kill people at home and abroad that they deem undesirable—non-citizens. As long as there are states—and international summits of states—there will be protest and revolt by the non-citizens of the world. We are in solidarity with Joel Bitar—who is a friend, a son, a nephew, a Palestine solidarity activist, a co-worker, a prospective nursing student, and a real person whose life cannot be categorized so easily into the familiar tropes. The US and Canadian governments want to call him a criminal, and eventually, an inmate. We fight this legal process and will support Joel throughout this predicament. Joel’s case may be unique, but state repression is not. We are in solidarity with all comrades who face state repression, especially those in jail from G20 protest charges in Canada and the Pacific Northwest Grand Jury Resisters here in the US.
