The Fifth Estate investigates police brutality during the G-20 and its implications on "democracy" in a supposedly democratic nation.

You Should Have Stayed at Home 45 minutes

February 25, 2011

As controversy continues to swirl around police treatment of G20 protestors, astonishing stories are now emerging about ordinary citizens caught in a huge police dragnet during those three highly charged days in June.

Over 1100 people 'removed' from the protests, sequestered with charges.

 

Particularly revealing closing comment from the English theatre prof:

So many people said: "You should have stayed home" and I just... I just don't even know where to begin with what's so infinitely wrong about that statement!

He's angry, but he's mostly disappointed at how few Canadians seem to care. So he's creating a new play called: "You Should Have Stayed Home"
