Hundreds gathered at City Hall as the MAYDAY #may1TO Protest rallys began at 4pm on Tuesday May 1, 2012. After listening to a few speeches the march to Alexandra Park. They stopped at a few intersections along the way before they poured into the park at Dundas and Bathurst. The police waited patiently at most intersections except at Spadina and Queen where the police moved people out of the intersection with calls of public safety.
Police presence is high, mostly of the bicycle variety. I saw some horse trailers but no mounted police yet - or any riot police. Parked on Bathurst are a couple of paddy wagons, cruisers and motorcycle police.
At 9pm the group is supposed to march to some undisclosed location for a 24 hour occupation which will end with no evidence of protest, disembarking the park at 10am to march to the Barrick Gold AGM.
Look for my continued coverage and photos of the night of protests.
