This photograph shows peaceful demonstrations during the 2010 G20 summit, which took place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on 26−27 June. The protests in Downtown Toronto were for various issues, including poverty and anti-capitalism. Although most of the protests and demonstrations were peaceful, the police presence in Toronto that week was unprecedented. Riot police were visible everywhere.
In this image, a group of protestors sit on the ground and are surrounded by people listing to the woman reading from her prepared speech. She was using a megaphone to be heard clearly in the large crowd. The female speaker is wearing a clerical collar, suggesting representing a religious organization. Collars are typically worn by seminarians and clergy members of Christian groups such as Anglican, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Apostolic, and Apostolic other Christian ministries.
Many people surrounded the group of protestors who were listening, including media reporters.
