Protests at the G20 and G8 Summits in Toronto went onto become the largest in Toronto's recent history, scaling at over 10,000 protestors. Ten years later, we ask: what is the legacy of the G20 protests and how do they shape protest today? To find answers, we spoke with Cara Zwibel, director of the Fundamental Freedoms program at CCLA, and Luke Stewart, an activist and professor at Sciences Po Lille in France, who was arrested at the protests and supported by CCLA in his case against police. A note to listeners: this episode contains description of police violence and sexual harassment.
