I have just been limited on my tweets, wasn’t aware that that could happen, or whether it may be due to my questions to @TorontoPolice @OliviaChow @PMHarper
have LOTS to say about this… will continue “tweeting” from the blog and on my fb page
TWEET @G8G20ISUca AND DEMAND THAT THEY LET THE MEDIA IN TO SEE THE CONDITIONS INSIDE
@CP24 @CityNews @MayorMiller
THEY ARE GOING TO CLOSE IT DOWN AND CLEAN IT UP. RT NOW.
PEOPLE NEED TO BE ANSWERING AS TO THE DETENTION OF CIVILIANS WHILE THE WORLD WATCHES. WHERE IS THE MAYOR? WHERE IS THE PM? CONTACT ALL SOURCES OF MEDIA AND ASK THEM WHY THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SEE INSIDE THE DETENTION CENTER WHEN PEOPLE ARE COMING OUT AND BEING TOLD THEY ARE “RATS IN CAGES”
THEY JUST LET PEOPLE GO AFTER HOURS. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING TO CHEER ABOUT. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE CONTACTING THEIR LAWYERS. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND A DISGUSTING DISPLAY OF POWER, PARTICULARLY FOLLOWING ***NO POLICE PRESENCE LIKE THIS**** AS THE CITY WAS SMASHED AND BURNED AROUND US. THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INQUEST ON THIS, REPERCUSSIONS AND REEVALUATION ON POLICE AND POLITICAL PROTOCOL
BILL BLAIR, DAVID MILLER AND OLIVIA CHOW ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND. THEY DID ***NOTHING*** TO PROVIDE ANY SHELTER, FOOD OR WATER FOR PEACEFUL CIVILIANS WHO WERE NOT PROTESTING. THE POLICE CHARGED THE CIVILIANS AS THEY SANG “O CANADA”
THE MEDIA NEEDS TO GET BACK TO THE DETENTION CENTER AND DEMAND TO SEE INSIDE. http://twitter.com/G8G20ISUca says that “The Prisoner Processing Centre was built to ensure that anyone arrested is treated professionally, & provided with services such as washrooms, food, telephones, access to lawyers & medical care.” however, detainees seem to say otherwise, stating they were subjected to inhumane conditions. DEMAND that media be allowed in immediately before they clean up this disgusting mess — by sweeping it under the rug
Detainees were held without being able to speak to a lawyer or make a phone call – women were denied TAMPONS, they were called “rats” and the officers guarding them referred to their caging as “KENNELS”
THIS WHOLE THING REEKS OF A PHOTO OP GONE BAD. WHY were there police cars allowed to be torched and jumped on by “civilians”, documented with no police presence like the bullshit we’ve seen today? Whether or not there were criminals/vandals/”anarchists” etc present when arrests were made, detainees were not processed properly nor were they provided with basic human rights, blankets, food, medical attention. The police/government then found themselves in the embarrassing bed of their own making and decided to “call it off”. Who is giving orders here? PM HARPER has nothing to say. OLIVIA CHOW has nothing to say. BILL BLAIR and MAYOR DAVID MILLER are fucking INVISIBLE. This bullshit propaganda photo of a flaming police car in the financial district will no doubt be used to excuse the gigantic waste of money and excessive police brutality in the end, wait and see.
