Why should i blog? I always thought it was kinda egotistical. My political activism has always been about working as a collective, and why should people give a damn about what happeneds in my personal life.
I was once told by someone whose opinion I respect that all writers have blogs. I never really considered myself a writer, more of an activist who resorts to writing to get my message across.
After getting pre-arrested at the G20 in Toronto, as part of the “conspiracy” I found out my best friend for a year and a half was a dirty pig, and my other good friend for over 10 years was a payed for police informant. hundreds of pages of disclosure were about me, my friend, my health issues , and even how i chose to have sex with my ex.
This information,tainted ,twisted and made up was presented to my ex co accused (my charges were dropped last Nov., cause they didnt want me spilling the dirt on how corrupt these pigs were) there lawyers, the court and if it goes to trial the public at large.
I realize that being a dissident means being slandered brutalized and criminalized. From 1998-2006 i was on bail, in jail or semi house arrest. The system isnt going to give u a hug for trying to bring it down. But it was this incident and the aftermath that made me realize that being seen as an enemy of the state means that your life story and who you are will be made public. This blog is my attempt to set out my side of the story, not just about the g20 but everything in general. This site will have info on actions, political analysis, articles and my views on this screwed up system…..hope u enjoy
