UToronto to shut down for G20

Staff and students banned from campus


The University of Toronto will clear out its downtown campus for four days in June because of an influx of anarchists security concerns.

The campus is in close proximity to Queen’s Park, the official protest site of the G20 summit, so university officials have decided to ban staff and students from the St.George campus to make sure none of their own get involved. Students in residences will be relocated, exams will be moved and events on campus will be cancelled.

“We just want to make sure that our staff, faculty and students are safe during that period,” Laurie Stephens, U of T’s director of media relations told the Globe and Mail. “We’re going to try to disrupt them as little as possible.”

Students will now have to commute to join the humiliate the security apparatus” street party, hosted by Southern Ontario Anarchist Resistance (SOAR).

Way to make things difficult, U of T.
