The Slippery Slope of Civil and Human Rights at Toronto’s G20 Protests

Every year, people from all political and sociological beliefs get together to protest (most of them peacefully) for their particular cause.

The video below, entitled Under Occupation, provides real and shocking accounts of the events that transpired that week. Watch it.
