The Toronto G20 Riot Fraud

The Toronto G20 Riot Fraud

by Terry Burrows

June 26, 2010.

Toronto is right now in the midst of a massive government / media propaganda fraud. As events unfold, it is becoming increasingly clear that the 'Black Bloc' are undercover police operatives engaged in purposeful provocations to eclipse and invalidate legitimate G20 citizen protest by starting a riot. Government agents have been caught doing this before in Canada.

Montebello 2007 Riot Prevented - Identical Boots Exposed Undercover Police Provocateurs

At the ‘Security and Prosperity Partnership’ meeting protests at Montebello Quebec on August 20, 2007, a Quebec union leader caught and outed three masked undercover Quebec Provincial Police operatives dressed as ‘black bloc’ protestors about to start a riot by throwing rocks at the security police. See the following videos documenting this event.

Evidence -- Police provoke Violence at SPP protest

The operation was exposed by the following picture of the undercover police wearing combat boots identical to those of the security police arresting them.

(Provocateurs in Montebello wear the same shoes as the Quebec policemen who arrest them!)

See the distinctive yellow dots on the thick corrugated soles of the boots which are the giveaway

The Quebec Provincial Police were then forced after three days of public outrage to admit that these three men were indeed their officers operating undercover.

Fast Forward to the Toronto 2010 G20 Protest Riot

On Saturday June 26, 2010, the Globe and Mail published on their website a number of photographs taken at the afternoon riot in downtown Toronto precipitated by the ‘black bloc.’

Using these photos, I am going to show you that once again, the ‘black bloc’ provocateurs and the armoured police are wearing the exact same shoes.

Thanks to the Globe and Mail for these very helpful photos

Starbucks Vandalised

Here an operative throws a metal chair through a Starbucks window. This man’s physique doesn’t look like a seedy ‘anarchist’ to me. Rather, this is the fit strong body of a trained soldier – somebody who puts in a lot of regular gym time. He is also wearing what is really a uniform and rather specialized equipment on his forearm and possibly his hip. Unfortunately in this picture we cannot see the shoes being worn. But we certainly can in the picture that follows, and this is where it gets interesting.

The Provocateurs’ Combat Boots

Below another operative throws what appears to be a rock at another Starbucks window.

Take a close look at the upturned boot.

This is a brand new (? recently issued) very distinctive deep black colour combat boot. Note as at Montebello, the special thick heavy corrugated soles plus what appears to be some reinforcement of the upper forefoot area. Also note the mismatched black and white socks. Is this a recognition code to their uniformed colleagues? The nice heavy shiny new belt also appears to be part of a uniform.

Here is another ‘black bloc’ operative stomping on the roof of a Toronto Police car. Where are the police? He is obviously being “allowed” to trash the vehicle to create what will become the signature media images of the event - burning police cars in Toronto. But stamping on shattered glass and plastic is pretty hard on your shoes.

But his shoes can obviously take it because he is wearing the same brand new distinctive black combat boots as the Starbucks rock throwing provocateur above (go to the Globe and Mail url to see the higher resolution original photo). Note the same thick soles with the deep corrugations visible in an enlargement as a scalloping of the front bottom outer edge of the uplifted left shoe.

The Armoured Police Boots – They Are The Same Shoes!

Now check the uniformed armoured police boots. Note once again the thick heavy corrugated soles and deep black colour.

Here is one in close-up. It is clearly the same boot as the ‘black bloc’ provocateurs are wearing. It too is brand new and shiny as in recently issued for today’s duty.

Here are more of the armoured police boots.

Below is yet a closer view of the armoured police boots. This picture shows the upper part of the shoes more clearly. The police are also wearing what appears to be an additional protective spat module which is strapped on over the shoe’s upper front forefoot area. This looks like an extra equipment add-on to, and not an integral part of, the ‘civilian’ version of the shoe, which is otherwise identical to the police shoes in design, features and colour.

And in close-up

Canadian Bureaucratic Economizing Exposes The Fraud

That the ‘black bloc’ provocateurs and the uniformed armoured police are wearing in Toronto (as at Montebello) the identical government issue combat boot, has at least one positive aspect. It looks as if someone in the procurement bureaucracy was at least trying to do some economizing in the spending of the one billion dollars that this G20 fiasco has wrested from the taxpayers. Very sensibly, these bureaucrats wanted to provide the same sturdy combat boots for both the uniformed police officers as well as the undercover ones. How wonderfully Canadian.

But this endearing Hobbit-like practicality has also given the game away. The ‘black bloc,’ if they ever existed as an independent entity, have clearly been thoroughly infiltrated by undercover government agents. In classic covert counterinsurgency strategy these agents manipulate the group to commit violent acts which play directly into hidden government controllers' hands. These controllers manipulate public opinion from behind the scenes through the commission of false flag acts of violence (these are acts falsely blamed on scapegoats other than those concealed perpetrators who are actually responsible.) The psychological operation (psyop) is then accomplished through the propaganda fulminations of the completely controlled and complicit mass media. As in so many similar situations in so many other countries in the past, the goal of this combination of violent acts and lying media propaganda is to invalidate any legitimate citizen protest of the many immoral acts being wreaked upon the peoples of the world by our governments. The techniques of imperial control which have been used so successfully overseas are now being fully deployed against the people at home. Deployed against us. As far as our war-addicted governments are concerned, we are all insurgents now.

But Canadians Can Stop the G20 Fraud in Its Tracks

As this G20 protest riot fraud continues to unfold, please use your eyes and your cameras to pay attention to small details, like everybody’s shoes! As more and more people wake up from the deceptions being perpetrated upon them, more inconsistencies in the official propaganda story will be noticed. Evidence will tumble forward to expose the whole malignant enterprise even more. We could even stop it in its tracks. No other country has managed to do this yet. But we Canadians could.

The French are shocked with the violent images on TV tonight.

Herblay FRANCE

please world citizens learn from this situation and the others in the past. Violence will not bring us progress, especially when the violence is created by the police themselves.

Just only a few weeks ago David Cameron apologised for the Bloody Sunday killing.

At this G20 we have to denounce the people behind these provocations and if we can catch one or two of them we might be able to get to the organisers behind these acts unacceptable to us and the world.

As you can guess on the French television tonight we are all shocked by these holligans dressed in black. Unmask them and find out who they are working for.



update 28 juin 2010 18h45 French time
Talked to my colleagues about the shocking images on our television last night and they had no idea that there could have been the police dressed up as demonstrators. Can we have a maximum of video and information from citizens who were there so that these troublemakers can be submitted to the justice. Lets keep a look on the shoes and clothes of these wrong doers. At all our peacefull actions we must denonce all these troublemakers for the safety of all. No one should have his face hidden in a peacefull manifestation.

'It's gotta be the shoes' (not)

The author used a number of photos to show similarities between shoes worn by the cops and alleged 'black bloc' members destroying property. However, the photos are not clear enough to see if they're exactly the same or not- and the cops in riot gear have some kind of protective covering on their shoe laces, which partially obscures the view of the shoes. In addition to the shoes, the author claims that belts and unidentifiable objects hanging from belts *may* be 'evidence' of cop gear.

However, black shoes/boots with rugged soles are common and many manufacturers make ones that look similar to each other; this is not evidence these particular protesters are provocateurs, and this article might be leading people to look in the wrong direction for clues to provocateur activity.

In addition, at a link in the above article, there are photos of 'protesters' not even wearing black who are destroying property:
The author neglects to mention this, however.

Furthermore, after getting busted in 2007, would police-connected provocateurs be wearing anything that might enable people to ID them as cops?
Not necessarily; anyone destroying property could be a police provocateur, no matter what they're wearing. Still, some might be real people, disaffected and filled with rage at a corrupt socioeconomic and political order which serves the interests of wealthy elites who don't merit, work or produce anything useful, at the expense of people who are actually creative and productive.

The corporate media are, of course, focusing on the violence and ignoring the legitimate concerns people have. Anyone tempted to destroy property as a protest should consider how their actions might be causing even more damage to themselves and others with similar socioeconomic and sociopolitical status. Video cameras and internet access are more powerful tools for social change.
