uToronto student groups decry police raid

June 29, 2010

On Monday, student unions, campus groups, and labour organizations at the University of Toronto released a joint statement condemning the G20 Integrated Security Unit's raid of the university's Graduate Student Union building on Sunday, which resulted in about 70 people arrested, including 2 executive members of the graduate student union. The GSU stands by its decision to accommodate dozens of protesters during the G20 summit. A union executive says it informed uToronto administrators that guests would be staying at union headquarters. In a statement, the GSU says it "categorically denies any involvement in any undemocratic activity." UTSU News Release | GSU News Release | Globe and Mail
