Violent Protests in Toronto

Filed Under (Activism) by Estee on 27-06-2010

I want to take the opportunity on my blog to express the disgust I have for the violent protestors in my beloved city during the G20. Damaging businesses and hurting people does nothing to prove their point about poverty except to cost us more money. I hope the hoodlums pay a large price for the damage they have caused and the point that they have made — which is no point at all.

I was in Yorkville last night when police told us to get out as rumour had it that protesters were on their way. It was probably one of the more anxious moments of my life as I remembered the Seattle tragedy.

John Mayer sings a good song about Belief. It’s time to listen again. I recommend listening to the song while playing the videos of the protests underneath.
