Occupy Toronto: Blockade in Response to Police Violence

Posted 12 years ago on April 1, 2012, 7:07 a.m. EST by OccupyWallSt

Last Friday, Occupy Toronto was brutally evicted from their new encampment at Osgoode Hall at the Provincial Court buildings near City Hall. After holding their new home for four days, Toronto police moved in. Five Occupiers have been arrested and two required hospitalization after the unnecessary violent police attack. One person was arrested while delivering an explanation of the rights of protesters, and two more were arrested while filming. One woman was thrown to the ground and punched in the face by police in an incident being investigated for excessive force.

Yesterday, Occupy Toronto erected a blockade on Dundas Street in front of 52 Division for over eight hours beginning around 5:45pm. Today, they will continue. The blockaders are making four demands:

  1. Unconditional Release of three Occupiers still being held in Toronto Jails.
  2. All charges dropped against all those arrested on Friday.
  3. A Public Inquiry into Toronto Police Violence on Friday.
  4. The officers involved must be tried in civilian court.

Ways you can help:

  1. Come on down and join the blockade!
  2. Bring food and warm blankets, toques, gloves, drinks, & chairs, couches, tents, furniture, etc.
  3. Spread the word to your friends and via social media.
  4. Be creative! Police violence in Toronto has to end now!

A very special message from OccupyWallSt.Org: We have just received confirmation from highly-reputable sources that everyone´s favorite investment bank, Goldman Sachs, has entered into the race for the U.S. Presidency! We are proud to be the first site to break this story, and we hereby announce our support for this first-of-a-kind U.S. Presidential bid. We are passing along some useful campaign information to help our supporters get the word out. Goldman Sachs 2012!


Corporations are people and should be allowed to hold public office. Goldman Sachs has been functioning as the de facto Commander-in-Chief for years. HELP US MAKE IT OFFICIAL!


The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is a leading global investment banking, securities, and investment management firm. "We provide a wide range of financial services to a substantial and diversified client base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and high-net-worth individuals." Shorthand? All the big players in international politics already know and rely upon us as a part of our network.

Goldman Sachs - "a full-service global investment banking and securities firm" - has proven business acumen, international relations expertise, and knowledge of security. We will leverage our network to further the goals of humanity, through the prospects offered by corporate globalization and totally deregulated markets. We have a proven track record of success. Our friends in Europe already function as the de facto governments, and just look at the wonders they´ve done for Spain, Greece, and Ireland!
