Alex Hundert was arrested June 26h, 2010. By June 27th, over 900 Canadians had been arrested with him. He has been in and out of jail ever since. As part of his bail conditions he has been denied the right to speak at demonstrations and even discuss politics. He is a Canadian citizen yet he is being denied his right to free speech. Colony of Losers tends to stay away from politics and stick to the eccentricities of Michael Kimber and his friends. Unfortunately due to what free speech means to asshole writers like Michael Kimber, we are unfortunately going to have to jump into the game of fear, loathing and politics. Tomorrow a series called “Surrounded” will begin. As the G20 leaders sit down to talk in Seoul, Canadians are left wondering why a billion dollars was spent and why are trust in our government has been put in such doubt. “Surrounded” will take us back to that last week in June, 2010 when police arrested nearly a thousand Canadian citizens, detained them and denied them their most basic civil liberties.
I don’t know Alex but I do know his brother Jonah Hundert.
And soon you will too.
