G8/G20 Communique: Alex Hundert re-arrested after speaking at event in Toronto

Alex Hundert was arrested tonight after speaking at the G20 Strengthening Our Resolve talk. Reports coming in state he was arrested after arriving home and will be taken to the Metro West Detention Centre over night. Friends and supporters have vowed to gather tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. at Toronto's Old City Hall for his bail hearing.

Hundert is already out on bail as the government alleges he is one of the G20 "ringleaders" responsible for the G20 protests in Toronto this past June 2010 and faces numerous charges including three counts of conspiracy. The Crown has already once attempted to revoke his court ordered release on bail. More information to follow...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
