Photos from the December 10 action outside the US Consulate

Photojournalist John Pinel Donoghue was in downtown Toronto on December 10 to attend a pro-Palestine demonstration demanding a ceasefire in Gaza. The protest, attended by several thousand people, started outside the United States Consulate on University Avenue. It then moved to Yonge-Dundas Square before relocating to Toronto Police 52 division headquarters after a protester was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police officer.

According to the Toronto Star, the incident happened after “a police officer on foot [rammed] his bicycle into the bicycle of a woman standing in front of him. The woman, who was holding her bicycle, fell over as the bike toppled. A man ran up after and shoved an officer to the ground in retaliation. Police then tackled, beat and arrested him.” Video of the altercation shows a group of officers pinning a man to the ground, one with their knee, while another punches him repeatedly.  (more...)
