My Toronto Includes Civil Liberties and Pride

Despite our dickweed mayor, Toronto is fabulous.

Last year, because of our (anti-ReformaTory) fabulousness, Stephen Harper and his police-state trainees crapped all over us.

So, unless you have an urgent date with a cottage this weekend, it's time to turn your butts out again for G20 Redux: Fundamental Freedoms Festival.
Time: Saturday, June 25 · 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: Queen's Park, Toronto

To get you in the mood, here's a summary of indignities, costs, inquiries, and questions still outstanding.

And a reminder of how outrageously our civil liberties were stomped.
Of the some 1,100 protesters and bystanders who were arrested over the summit weekend, only 24 have been found guilty of anything at all. And, according to the province’s latest update on G20 prosecutions, just 56 cases are still outstanding.

BONUS: From a great piece by Ivor Tossell on Rob Fucking Ford and Pride: 'Toronto comes with Pride'.
