G20 Toronto photo gallery: native rights activists take to downtown streets

First Nations rights activists took to Toronto’s streets yesterday, marching from Queen’s Park to Allan Gardens chanting “No G20 on stolen native land” and “Justice, freedom, self-determination. Canada is an illegal nation.” The colourful demonstration ended peacefully, with police reporting no arrests or injuries. Here, our slide show of the event.
