Face Painting, Bubbles Part Of Rally Demanding G20 Inquiry Into Police Actions

A few hundred people gathered outside the Ontario legislature for the second Saturday in a row to protest police action during the G20 summit in Toronto.

The rally is calling for a federal public inquiry into police conduct during the summit.

During the rally, there was face painting, street theatre and music, as organizers described the day as a fun, healing event.

Earlier in the day, hundreds of bubbles filled the front lawn of the legislature as about 60 people blew bubbles together.

Organizer Valentyna Onisko said the “bubble-in” was meant to draw attention to police brutality during the G20 weekend in late June.

She organized the event after watching a video on the Internet of an officer threatening to arrest a young woman blowing bubbles during G20 protests.
