Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Oct. 12 /CNW/ - Public demonstrations are taking place across Canada to denounce a ruling that has found alleged G20 protest 'ringleader' Alex Hundert in breach of his 'no-demonstration' bail condition for speaking as an invited panellist at two university forums in September 2010. Hundert has been in jail over the past month and a new bail hearing is underway at the Scarborough Courthouse, 1911 Eglinton Avenue East. Decrying ongoing criminalization of dissent in the post G20-period, activists in Toronto, Vancouver, Kitchener, and Edmonton are protesting under the banner "This is what a public demonstration looks like!" today.
