In the early morning hours of January 20th, 2008 at the University of Windsor, approximately 30 Windsor police, with a canine unit, acted with brutality against students who appeared to have been doing nothing wrong, other than moving too slowly for police, who apparently demanded they leave the student centre. Were the police over-reacting to the Passa Passa event? Dogs this time and are Tasers next? Welcome to the new fascism …..looks a lot like the old kind.
The resulting action by students on February 14, was a success and was covered by Sonja Puzic in the Windsor Star.
