So, here I am covering the events of Occupy Toronto’s May Day celebrations- live and on the spot! I started waiting at Bay & King Street where the ‘Human’ chess game was announced, but it turned-out to be a decoy.
I talked with a group of the ‘copsicles’ who made the trip down there worthwhile. It seems that they have a nickname for me! I’m known by the Toronto Police as “The Lawyer!” I can assume this is because of my work helping the re-occupation at Osgoode Hall.
So I hopped over to Nathan Philips Square (City Hall) and caught-up with the action there. It didn’t take 5 minutes of my presence before I was assaulted! Dave Vasey came up and started harassing me- he was with Judy Rebick, who you will see in this film.
Right after, he went away and grabbed Trey Winney & Greg Ciprik- two people who I know are very pro Black Bloc. The camera was switched-off. but after a couple of minutes Greg took a swipe at my camera and then Dave Vasey licked his finger and wiped it on my lens!
Being concerned about what could happen to me the rest of the day I decided the best course of action was to report the assault to the police. And, what do you know, the police officer who I negotiated with at Osgoode Hall was there, he sent a couple of officers into City Hall with me to file a formal report.
Then I came outside and Dave came after me again, this time careful not to touch me or my camera. I was talking to a reporter from The Sun and Dave went up to him and said that I was mentally ill- wow, what a moron Dave is! I now have on record his defaming me with a member of the press as a witness!
I then had an on-camera chat with a Sun News reporter, and was able to tell him about Judy Rebick being closely related with Harsha Walia & Alex Hundert- leaders of the Black Bloc. I also got the chance to tell him that I believe Occupy Toronto has been hijacked by the unions and the International Socialists! Watch for me on TV later today!
Curiously, a couple of the occupiers who were there gave me nods of approval. One said to me- “That’s it, say what you believe in, that’s what you should be doing!” Thanks to those who supported me- I truly appreciate knowing others also see the problems with Occupy Toronto.
Stay-tuned! Much more to come today!
