Tamil Protests Toronto

Tamil Protests Shut Down the Gardiner

Members of the Toronto Tamil community have brought the Gardiner to a stand-still. Entering the Spadina on-ramp earlier this evening, a throng of protesters has effectively halted traffic in both directions. Photos are starting to surface online including more than 20 in this Flickr set. Torontoist also has posted some excellent up close photos. And a blog called TorontoProtest has a series of photos documenting the ascent up the on-ramp.

Update: The Gardiner has now been cleared, but a group of protesters is now blocking University again this morning.

Videos have also been posted to YouTube including this one of protesters rushing the on-ramp.
