How will the funds be used?
The G20 Legal Defence Fund has been set up to support all those arrested and facing charges arising from the G20 protests in Toronto.
The fund is being overseen by a group of well respected trustees including Ed Broadbent, Winnie Ng of the Toronto Labour Council, and Professors Leslie Wood and Anna Willats.
The funds are being held in trust by the law firm of Paul Copeland, who will ensure that they are used responsibly towards their intended purpose.
The funds will be given out based on an assessment of need and risk.
The G8/G20 meetings took place in Ontario from June 25-27, 2010. Toronto-based organizations of women, people of colour, indigenous peoples, the poor, the working class, queer and trans people and disabled people organized a peoples convergence with 40,000 people taking to the streets, standing up for justice in collaboration and solidarity!
Activists, community members, inspired and outraged individuals came together as a movement to demand justice for people and the planet. Over a week of mobilizations, events, workshops and direct actions took place in the face of state and police repression, violence and infringements on rights and freedoms.
We must continue to mobilize and build greater solidarity among our communities- an important part of this is supporting all those arrested during the G20 summit, including our allies still in detention, and those released on bail.
