CONFEDERATE FLAG HUNG IN BARBRA HALL PARK

 

Today, an individual whom we do not know hung a Confederate Flag in the Barbara Hall Park in the presence of many members of our community, and made several inflammatory remarks.

This individual left the park (with his flag) before an intervention was possible. Members of our community have reported to us that there has been an increase in racist, homophobic, and transphobic incidents in the village over the past several weeks and we are alarmed.

While we work to organize a response to these incidents, we want to inform the community and request to watch out for any behaviour or action that puts members of our communities at risk. If you witness racist, transphobic and/or homophobic incidents, graffiti, or any other form or expression of hate, please report it to the police by calling 911 for emergencies or 416.808.2222 for non-emergency situations.

If you need support to report an incident or would simply like a safe place to talk about an experience you have had, you can call Victim Services Toronto at 416.808.7066. The 519 is also available to support members of our community through counselling support or by helping them report incidents of violence.

THANK YOU

You can leave a message at 416.355.6770 at The 519. We must act with vigilance and courage in the face of violence and hatred. We must oppose racism, homophobia, transphobia and all forms of hate wherever and whenever they occur.

Thank you.

How fast would Toronto Police Service (TPS) be there if people were doing drugs or drinking on the grass? Or what if someone was sunbathing nude? We can only guess, from looking at past homophobic behaviours by members of the Toronto Police Service, they would be there in a flash to shut that “gay stuff” down.

We look at incidents like the undercover sting operation in Marie Curtis Park, or the incident a couple months back where an officer is seen on tape saying;

He will spit in your face and you are gonna get AIDS.

What has been done about the excessive drinking and sex between heterosexual couples in Trinity Bell Woods Park?

Where was Toronto Police Service when one of our safe spaces was invaded?

Still think the TPS is on our side?
