Paul Jay: Was the Prime Minister the hidden hand behind the G20 fiasco in Toronto?

https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/

The Real News

[…]

JAY: Superintendent McNeil told his hometown paper, The Cape Breton Post, quote, “‘We have the ability through our video feed to see everything that is going on.’ There are even helicopters and planes providing video feed. ‘We can see them from the air, we can see them from the ground, if there’s anyone trying to interfere, we would see that.'” Well, we know the police had infiltrated the black bloc. Now, we know the cameras could see everywhere. So why couldn’t the police defend their own vehicles? Was this part of a plan? Or a lack of available resources, as the police have said?

Suffice to say the reaction of the police, in arresting, detaining, and brutalizing nearly 1,000 people in the largest mass arrest in Canadian history, exposes the serious attacks on civil liberties the left faces. Continue reading

Naomi Klein: There has been a very powerful attack on freedom of expression in this country

https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/

rabbletv | July 03, 2010

On Tuesday, June 29, Naomi Klein made a surprise appearance at Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (QUAIA)’s Pride in Our Politics Cabaret. Making the links between the police repression of protest over the G20 and the slanderous attacks that groups such as QUAIA have experienced, Klein explained: “There has been a very powerful attack on freedom of expression in this country. A McCarthyite campaign against people who fall outside of the Harper government’s version of what we should be saying or doing.”

The quality of this video is not great – but the audio is worth a listen.
