Police surround and attack small group of protesters at Queen and Spadina

Graphic video shows brutal takedown of peaceful demonstrators.

Police surround and attack small group of protesters at Queen and SpadinaThis is footage taken by a demonstrator at the G20 in Toronto. She writes:

My sister and I were participating in a peaceful protest march. Everyone was singing and chanting, but absolutely no violence, and no one wearing bandanas or throwing things. We marched west on Queen Street, but our progress was blocked at Spadina Avenue. We didn't realize, until it was too late, that we were divided from the main group and surrounded. As I said, it was to late.

The cut I get over my left eye is from the unprovoked jab from a cops riot shield. What you don't see is the beating I got after they dragged me away... (No proof, other than pictures of bruises.)

We were detained for 6 hours, without a phone call, denied a bathroom, treated like animals and then released... with NO CRIMINAL CHARGES.
