BLM Toronto: “Burn Down White Privilege”, “Abolish Police”, F— Police”

On Saturday May 30, 2020 Black Lives Matter held an anti-Police protest in downtown Toronto. A few thousand people marched from Christie Pitts to Police headquarters located at 40 College Street holding signs and chanting slogans against the Police and cops (“pigs”).

Some of the signs read:

Burn Down White Privilege

Destroy white supremacy

Abolish the Police

Abolish Policing

F— Police

All cops are bastards

Black Lives Matter

Silence in violence

Cops lie Blacks die

Defund Police

The Police is the virus

White silence = violence

The organizers issued the following statement:

Anti-Black/Indigenous racism is a pandemic around the world. We need accountability NOW. On Turtle Island “North America” alone we’ve been faced with the tragedies of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Regis Korchiniski-Paquet and countless other black people we do not know of or hear of who are relentlessly being murdered by the police and white supremacists for absolutely no reason. The media continues to hide these injustices from us, but we will not let these lives go unnoticed. We are joining the chorus of actions being taken across Turtle Island and globally, to get accountability and justice from police departments for Black and Indigeneous communities.

    Just this one comment, (Mubin Shaikh calls Tarek Fatah “NOT a Muslim”, implying he deserves death in Islamic State) tells me this movement which looks like Antifa has Islamic Brotherhood (Political Islam) roots. These young white people in these protests don’t realize they are calling for the end of civil rights and switch to Sharia Law.
