Yesterday court hearings were heard for the Occupiers who were arrested during the eviction from Osgoode Hall. One occupier was brought into the court and was black and blue, face swollen and stitches above her brow. Two of them were taken to the hospital after the arrests and another stated in court that they had been injured during the arrest. The violence against all of these occupiers was completely unnecessary and shameful. We cannot accept this violence against our brothers and sisters.
Two of the arrested were released on bail and banned from associating with each other along with other conditions including not coming with 25 meters of Osgoode Hall. The others arrested are still being held.
A huge thank you to the lawyers who helped Occupiers through the hearing. They did an incredible job and we cannot thank you enough for your hard work!
Yesterday Occupiers blockaded the streets in front of 52 division. Today Occupiers will continue to blockade 52 division and demand
1. Unconditional Release of three Occupiers still being held in Toronto Jails. (Now 5)
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:
