Under Occupation: Toronto G20 Operation

“What we see right now, to all effective purposes, if they arrest a thousand people or more and then don’t charge them, they’ve eliminated the right to protest and free assembly, but it’s never going to get tested in court because they just drop the charges. They can go fishing and throw the fish back and nothing ever comes of it.”

Under Occupation: Toronto G20 Operation is an educational documentary that shows, in chronological order, the events that transpired over the G20 weekend in Toronto, Canada. While the mainstream media repeatedly broadcast images of burning police cars and broken windows, the cameras on the ground captured a far more terrifying story. Eyewitness video footage and firsthand accounts featured in this film tell a horrific tale of police brutality, mass arrests, secret laws and outrageous violations of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
