...I went to Toronto to exercise my civil rights and march in active opposition to the G8 and G20 meetings being held there. On Sunday June 27th, I attended a jail solidarity protest that was peaceful. Without warning a line of riot police started moving towards us, and while running away, I was shot twice with rubber bullets, then arrested and incarcerated for 30 hours. I have been charged with obstruction of a peace officer. I have never been more terrified, more dehumanized or more in pain than I was that day. I wish my story were unique.

People were seen shaking and very scared as [they] talked to family and friends on their cell phones. By 6:30 pm it began to rain heavily on the crowd. One young man held up a sign that said, “Everything will be OK” as riot cops banged their shields. Riot cops had been slowly going into the crowd and arresting people one at a time. They even enclosed a hot dog vendor and a woman in an electric wheelchair.
