Product description

Review

“I love that editors Tom Malleson and David Wachsmuth made the democratic and risky decision to include a broad spectrum of opinions in their book…This sober retelling of events replaces knee-jerk emotions with necessary facts for anyone still trying to figure out what the hell happened…The spark lies in the storytelling.”

(rabble.ca)

“?Focusing on eyewitness accounts and reportage,…[the book?’s second and third parts] provide powerful illustrations of the clashes between security forces and protestors.”

(Quill & Quire)

“By telling the stories of the dedicated activists who took our demands for local and global justice and democracy to the streets of Toronto, Whose Streets? offers proof that, in the face of state repression and police violence, our collective resistance to neo-liberal capitalism only grows stronger.”

(Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians)

“An invaluable resource for anyone interested in protest in the age of corporate globalization.”

(Judy Rebick, activist and author of Transforming Power: From the Personal to the Political)

“We cannot build a mass movement that is up to the internal as well as external challenges we face unless we collectively and comradely dissect and learn from our struggles. This book is an indispensable resource in applying that basic principle.”

(Sam Gindin, Visiting Packer Chair in Social Justice, York University)

“Whose Streets? celebrates the power of speaking out?let it be widely read and let that power be widely heard.”

(Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel, Canadian Civil Liberties Association)

“Whose Streets? warrants a broad and diverse readership, within and beyond the academy.”

(Labour/Le Travail)

From the Author

More than a year after the Toronto G20 Summit protests, there are still dozens of activists and social justice organizers facing outstanding G20-related legal charges. The legal fees for the defence of these activists are expected to be well over a million dollars. Without help it will fall on the shoulders of already over-burdened activists to engage in fundraising, to the detriment of their ongoing community organizing.

As a movement we are poor in dollars but rich in solidarity. Please donate generously to the G20 Legal Defence Fund by sending a cheque to the ?Toronto Community Mobilization Network? (with ?G20 legal defence? on the subject line).

Cheques can be mailed to: Toronto Community Mobilization Network 360A Bloor Street W, PO Box 68557 Toronto, ON, M5S 1X0

Alternatively, donations are possible via money transfer or Paypal online.

All royalties from sales of Whose Streets? will be donated to the G20 Legal Defence Fund.
