article imageOccupy Toronto — Observations from the camp

By KJ Mullins
Nov 3, 2011 in World
Toronto - Instead of going away protesters at Occupy Toronto are holding strong, with more tents going up every day. Walking through the public park turned camp is like touring a different city.
One of the medics said on his way home that almost everyone at the event knows why they are there. The communal feeling is as strong, if not stronger, than when the protest began last month.
A strong smell of marijuana was evident for some as they walked through the public park. There is a tent that holds the 'sacred fire' for which fire wood is chopped. The media is not allowed to take pictures of inside the tent.

The camp has now taken on a city within a city feel. With food tents, public washrooms and at times disputes among the campers. One was witnessed between two, one of whom was chopping wood. It was settled by a moderator.

On Wednesday media from the Toronto Sun were asked to leave the camp, with police escort. There are still some reporters from the Sun, who are said to be "undercover", but the protesters pointed at least one of them out.
