Toronto, September 18, 2010.
G20 defendant and alleged ‘ringleader’ Alex Hundert appeared in court on Saturday September 18, 2010 for an alleged breach of his existing bail condition to not participate in any public demonstration. The police and Crown have made the preposterous and unbelievable claim that Alex’s two public speaking events on university campuses in Kitchener and Toronto are public demonstrations.
On Saturday September 18, approximately 100 people gathered for a courthouse rally. AW@L member Rachel Avery, OCAP member Liisa Schofield, Anishinaabekwe (Algonquin) Indigenous sovereigntist Jen Meunier, No One Is Illegal member Mohan Mishra, and Ryerson professor and co-panelist and organizer of the Toronto panel event Judy Rebick all spoke powerfully and defiantly about not being intimidated in the face of ongoing arrests and to strengthen our commitment to this resistance.
In court, Alex appeared briefly, just to set another date for Tuesday September 21 at the 2201 Finch courthouse. On Tuesday again, he will only appear briefly to schedule a 3-day hearing for sometime in the next few weeks, where the Crown will try to argue that he was in breach of his bail conditions. The Crown is also seeking to revoke Alex’s bail entirely and keep him behind bars till trial.
“Being thrown back in jail illegitimately and maliciously in no way dampens my resolve, in fact it only strengthens it and I am resolute to continue fighting. I hope that while I am in jail as many people as possible will continue building movements and building relationships across struggles, and will continue to push back against the system and its norms of domination.” – Alex Hundert from jail, Sep 19th.
