So… on Wednesday we attended a rally and march. It was put on by OCAP (Ontario Coalition Against Poverty).
When we arrived at 900 Bay – it was a rally – and then there was an announcement that we were going on a march – to an undisclosed location!!! Now you’re talking! lol Off we went! I thought things were a little odd when we turned down a street that they don’t normally march on. lol And I was right! Next thing I know there is a banner dropped out of a window in a building beside us and John Clarke is speaking on a microphone!!! MY John Clarke! lol
There were ten people that went inside the Liberal’s office… and they all ended up illegally arrested. One woman was in a wheelchair, Anne.. and she uses a board to point at for speaking. Her assistant speaks vocally for her. They detained both women for longer than the others and even separated them upstairs.
This is a human rights violation! Both women were later released and charged.
Anne is a very outspoken individual! lol She’s very feisty… the police assumed that she was being used by OCAP – that she didn’t have a brain… well, she told us all in no uncertain terms just what she thought of THAT! lol Even used the F word. lol She said they were able-ist creeps!
From there we all went to the police station, 52 Division, where the others were being held. We waited for a few hours, but in the end we were told that all would be held overnight. They went to court the next morning…so we went home.
