G-20 Arrestees Still Need Financial Support!

Over 200 people still face charges arising from the protests against the G-20 summit in Toronto at the end of June, with at least 110 charged with “conspiracy” or “counseling.” As a legal update from late August reports, “Conspiracy charges do not require authorities to prove that any so-called illegal activity even took place, only shared intent or encouragement of so-called illegal activity. The test for evidence is sufficiently lowered for conspiracy charges and is thus an easy way for the police and the courts to criminalize dissent and silence outspoken critics. This is one of the most worrisome tactics of the G20 ‘security’ attack.”
