Wall Street protests coming to Bay Street
The plan as it currently stands is to set up a base of protesters in a location close to King and Bay Street on the Saturday and spend the weekend planning and gathering supporters for a large march on Monday. Past these first three days, not much has been decided, although the expectation is that the occupation will last at least further into the week.
It may come as no surprise that a number of the organizers of Occupy Toronto are veterans of the G20. While there are no definitive plans as of this writing, if the protests happening elsewhere can be used as an example, expect a tent city that serves as a base of organizing, with workshops, communal resources, and a media centre. A number of speeches or marches may be planned as the week progresses but hopefully everything will remain non-violent and our local men in blue can avoid any scenes reminiscent of two summers ago.
