Shame on you!
Police brutality against girls and women at the G20 G8 2010 in Toronto, Canada.
15-18 year old girls only get 3 tiny cheese sandwiches and 3 cups of water for over 30 hours. 100's of girls are strip searched, watched naked and some sexually harassed by male police officers. Sexist behaviour and explicit sexual remarks ar very commonplace in the G20 detention center.
Women and girls are violently detained, snatched and shot at by police in Toronto, Canada during the G20 2010.
A female journalist is harassed to get raped and gangbanged multiple times by male police officers. They want to make SURE she NEVER works as a journalist again...
Young people traumatized for their life. Held for 30 hours in a guantanamo like prison camp with insufficient food and 3 tiny cups of water, 40 women held in tiny, cold cells. No right to a lawyer, no right to a phone call, freezing cold - is this the way we want to raise our children - society?
'I had to remove my bra because it could be a weapon. We had to remove our shoes because they said it could be a weapon... so we were barfoot... and it was freezing cold. Then they told me I was going to be strip searched.'
