People Protesting Peacefully at the G20

By: Gini Dietrich | June 30, 2010 | 

On this week’s InsidePR, Martin, Joe, and I spend a bit of time talking about the G20, how it was perceived to the U.S., how people protested peacefully, and not so peacefully, and where we were getting our news surrounding the conference.

But, as Martin and Joe continued the conversation about what G20 meant to Toronto and how the “news” was coming via Twitter from people not allowed inside, I couldn’t get my head around this video on Eric Portelance’s site .

It’s people protesting peacefully at the G20. I’ve watched it at least 12 times. I still can’t understand why this happened. Did they really wait until the national anthem was finished before charging?

What do you think??
