George Horton is an amazing photographer and activist from Peterborough being sentenced on G20 related charges this Thursday August 9th. He has been involved in Food not Bombs and a variety of other projects, besides being an animal lover and traveller.

George was convicted on May 15th 2012 on six charges related to the anti-G20 protests on the Saturday of the G20 weekend in Toronto in 2010. He was arrested later that fall after an individual wrote in to Toronto Police implicating him in alleged actions during the demonstrations.

George is facing a potential 15-18 months in prison.

George was convicted of:
-disguise with intent to commit an indictable offence
-intimidation of a justice system participant
-assault peace officer (police)
-3 counts of mischief over $5000

If you know George or even if you have never met him before, he and his friends and loved ones would appreciate your support at his sentencing hearing.
