article imageMan protests the G20 protesters during march in Toronto Special

By Andrew Moran     Jul 10, 2010 in World
Toronto - As thousands of activists and protesters marched from Queen's Park to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Saturday, one man stood at the corner of College Street and Spadina Avenue to protest the protesters by sticking the middle finger up at people.
On Saturday, an estimated 5,000 people marched in solidarity and with a common purpose to urge the governments to setup an independent public inquiry to investigate the allegations made by Toronto detainees, the conduct of the police officers and who made all of the orders.
However, one individual was not standing in solidarity with the activists and protesters but instead he stuck his middle finger up in the air wearing a police cap, honking the horn to his bike and wrapped a sign around a street pole insulting several organizations and institutions, including York University, Ontario Public Service Employees Union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada and others.
The man’s display drew significant attention as members of the press swarmed to the protester.
Some protesters also stuck their middle fingers at the man, cussed him out and attempted to provide the gentleman with some information, such as one activist who told the man about cops allegedly being involved with Black Bloc as provocateurs.
The man did not care, however, and told off some photographers by telling them, “Hey! Quit blocking my sign.”
