Egyptian Solidarity Rally Toronto

Toronto steps up its show of support for Egypt

Toronto's latest rally in solidarity with protesters in Egypt asking for President Hosni Mubarak to resign was held at 1pm at Queen's Park on Saturday. After numerous speakers addressed the crowd -- mostly calling on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to renounce his support for Mubarak -- protesters made their way along College Street, turned north on Yonge, and then headed back towards Queen's Park along Wellesley Street.

The solidarity protest was larger than last week's and louder. Canadian politicians and labour figures, including NDP leader Jack Layton, and Ontario Federation of Labour head Sid Ryan were in attendance. Numerous communist and socialist groups took part in the protest as well.
