The G-20 Toronto summit, held during June 26-27, 2010, was the fourth meeting of the G-20 heads of government, assembled for the purposes of elites discussing strategies for overcoming the European debt crisis, a deepening global resession controlling the global financial system and world economy.

It became one of the most expensive security operatioms in Canadian history. Security forces included 10,000 uniformed cops, 1,000 security guards, and several Canadian military force patrols, and its own version of Guantanamo Bay, as the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) exploited the opportunity to practice techniques of crowd surveillance and control. Toronto was turned into a militarized urban zone with checkpoints and passport control stations put up throughout the city.

World leaders and activists from around the world gathered for the G20 Summit. With over 19,000 police officers and security personnel on hand, the results led to over 1100 arrests, martial law in downtown Toronto, and the most massive violations of civil liberties in Canadian history.

It was a warm up and harbinger for things to come as the social and ecological crisis will inevitably create ever more pitched conflicts and castrophes at all levels. This documetary covers the tumultuous events of two days in June 2010 and their lasting impact.

Anyone who would like a somewhat amusing but definitely terrifying glimpse into what a modern industrial capitalist intensive Big Brother police state looks like, just watch the first 30 minutes of this movie. Warning, you will want to watch the rest of the film after this!
