Salut rebellions,

To give everyone a glimpse into the mind of the right-wing, mainstream media, here is a Globe and Mail article I was alerted to this morning, that is chock full of a paranoia. G8/G20 blogger (evidently my counterpart) Siri Agrell passes judgement on a CLAC (anti-capitalist convergence) video.

Quote: “Here’s another disturbing video posted by the people at CLAC, the Anti-Capitalist Convergence 2010. Called Mon voyage à Toronto and posted on Twitter this morning by “activist” Jaggi Singh, the video features footage of various locations around Toronto, set to the soothing beats of a song that includes lyrics: “Smash a window” and “F*ck the police.”

The video shows a map of the downtown core with the security perimeters shaded in. The Monopoly Man has been superimposed over the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, while skull and cross bones are used to mark various locations, including several downtown banks, the McDonald’s at Queen and Spadina, and the Hockey Hall of Fame. Each skull and cross bones appears beside the words Vous êtes ici.”

I’m posting the video here so you all can make your own judgements about the video’s intent.
