Toronto Call : No More Police State Tactics

Below is a statement that you are being asked to sign.   We believe it is urgent to get as many signatures on a call for a public inquiry We believe it is possible to shift the terms to debate, and to shine a spotlight on the abusive police practices during the G8/G20. But we need your help to do that.

 Please sign on and circulate the call widely to friends, colleagues, allies and networks who might be willing to sign.  

Email TheTorontoCall@gmail.com  and with your name, affiliation and which category you prefer to be placed in (trade unionists, faculty, students, community activists, legal workers, teachers, cultural workers, arrested and detained)

The police response to the protests against the G8/G20 in Toronto was the largest mass arrest in Canadian history, surpassing the 1993 Clayoquot Sound logging blockade.

It constituted the most far-reaching single assault on political
rights in the Canadian state since the War Measures Act of 1970.

This morning police raided a Toronto home and arrested four organizers.  No doubt this is an example of preventative detention yet another tactic in the arsenal of repression known as the Miami protocol that has turned our city into a police state.
