Groups planning to protest during G-20 summit in Toronto

     Groups staging protests on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty (G-20) Summit being held here over the weekend, have said that police tactics will not intimidate them. Security personnel are erecting a link fence around several blocks of downtown Toronto surrounding the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where the summit will take place. Equipment that officers will have at their disposal includes so-called sonic cannons, capable of emitting piercing sounds at painful levels. The group claims police have been targeting community organizers, following them and visiting their workplaces, meetings and homes. An area has been set-aside at Queen's Park, where the Ontario legislature is located, for peaceful demonstrations.
