Contribute to the G20 Legal Defence Fund in Québec!

Our solidarity is stronger than their repression!

The G20 Legal Defence Fund in Quebec continues to raise money in support of all people facing charges in relation to the anti-G20 protests in Toronto in June 2010.

The Fund considers that all arrests occurred in the context of a legitimate struggle against the capitalist policies of the G20, and that all charges should be dropped immediately.

The G20 Legal Defence fund is managed by a group of six local anti-capitalist community organizers who are not facing legal charges themselves, and will ensure that legal funds are properly disbursed.

5000 x $5: A campaign to raise $25,000 for the Quebec G20 Legal Defense Fund, $5 at a time.

In the aftermath of the largest mass arrests in Canadian history during the G20 in Toronto, many dozens of protesters still face charges. Charges have been withdrawn against the bulk of people who were arrested from Quebec, revealing the arbitrary and repressive nature of the arrests in the first place. However, several Quebec-based community organizers, activists and residents are still facing serious charges. They are living under house arrest conditions, face several years of judicial proceedings, and face jail time. Their charges will not be withdrawn any time soon, and certainly not without a serious legal and political battle.

Our strength in the face of this police and state repression is our solidarity. And one tangible way to show your solidarity is to contribute to the G20 Legal Defence Fund (le Fonds de défense légale des accusé(e)s du G20).

We know that the overwhelming majority of us can’t afford to donate much money from our limited to non-existent incomes. But, collectively, many of us can chip in $5 (or a little more). We’re hoping up to 5000 of you can do so, so that together we can meet the goal of raising $25,000.

The Quebec-based G20 Legal Defence Fund is prioritizing meeting the legal expenses of all individuals facing criminal charges and potential jail time (and/or deportation) related to the G20 protests in Toronto. The fund is based on the principle that no accused should plead guilty or feel obliged to plea-bargain based on the lack of funds or resources. The Fund considers that all arrests occurred in the context of a legitimate struggle against the capitalist policies of the G20, and that all charges should be dropped immediately.

The G20 Legal Defence fund is managed by a group of six local anti-capitalist community organizers who are not facing legal charges themselves, and will ensure that legal funds are properly disbursed.

Since we’re asking for $5 at a time, we ask that you visit one of our “black boxes” located all over Montreal to make a donation. The black box sites include:

Thank you for considering a donation and contributing to the legal defence of all people arrested at the G20 in Toronto.


The Finance & Fundraising Committee of the Anti-Capitalist Convergence of Montreal, on behalf of the G20 Legal Defence Fund/ le Fonds de défense légale des accusé(e)s du G20


For people reading this appeal from outside Quebec, we encourage your contributions to the alternative G20 Legal Fund organized by the Guelph (Ontario) Anarchist Black Cross (ABC). This fund is an accessible alternate fund for G20 arrestees, mostly those facing serious charges. The fund is for immediate short-term needs of the defendants. More details about this fund, in English, here:


Le verger au complet!

La Convergence des luttes anticapitalistes (CLAC) produit une série de podcasts sous forme d'entrevues nommée Le Verger au complet qui vise la diffusion d’informations relatives à l’abolition de la police et des prisons et à la justice, en abordant des thématiques telles que l'emprisonnement des migrant.e.s, la criminalisation de la dissidence et la justice transformatrice.

Alors que les discours libéraux présentent les violences policières comme l'affaire de quelques pommes pourries dans le panier nous proposons plutôt une analyse critique de la police et des institutions punitives: on ne réforme pas un système pourri, on l’abolit! Attaquons-nous au verger au complet!

Les idées et la révolte se partagent
