Two weeks after police cracked down on G20 demonstrations in Toronto, protesters will march again.
Thousands are expected to gather at the Ontario Legislature this afternoon to demand an independent public inquiry into security costs and police actions during the G20 summit.
Provincial New Democrat Party leader Andrea Horwath is expected to speak at the rally, which begins at 1 p.m.
Demonstrators are expected to march through the downtown core.
Almost 1,000 people were arrested during the summit weekend, after a group of vandals broke away from protesters, smashing windows and burning police cars.
Demonstrations are also expected in Halifax, Kingston and Montreal.

Organizations: Ontario Legislature, New Democrat Party

    They should be more interested and concerned by the actions of the protesters (criminals and thugs) and not the police....

    yeah thats a start. But protesting the government won't change anything. There's more than just governments that run the world. They still arn't going to stop spraying chemicals on us from high altitude jet air craft. They still arn't going to come out with a workable drug policy nor will they tax banks and businesses instead of people.

    But give those swine hell. It's all we have.
