Protest zones ain't a bazaar. ISU says to keep the booths at home

Keep the tables at home, protestors. At least that’s what one activist has been told by G20 security officials.

Toronto lawyer Bryant Greenbaum had hoped to set up a booth in both Huntsville and Toronto to hand out brochures and other information regarding TSX listing mining companies in Africa.

But in an e-mail exchange, an Integrated Security Unit official told him that officers won’t be allowing any tables in the designated protest zones.

“Surely I can not fully exercise my rights to freedom of expression and assembly if I must stand or sit on the grass holding on to documents and laptops with my spare hands,” Greenbaum said in an e-mail.

YOU MEAN THE TTC HAS "REGULAR" SERVICE NOW???? VERY FEW ROUTES RUN ON SCHEDULE. ON SUNDAYS, WHEN THERE IS LITTLE TRAFFIC ON THE STREET. IT AMAZES ME HOW THE RTE 116 BUSES RUN IN GROUPS OF TWO OR THREE BUSES WITHIN A MINUTE OF EACH OTHER WHEN THE "SCHEDULED" GAP (INTERVAL) IN 9 MINUTES BETWEEN BUSES? NOBODY (SUPERVISOR) EVER FIXES THE GAP AND I DOUBT THE DRIVER IS EVER QUESTIONED.

Go Greenbaum!
