At least 10,000 anti-G20 protesters are braving wet, humid weather to march in the heart of downtown Toronto on Saturday amid a massive police presence, before the official start of the meeting of world leaders.

The protesters danced, clapped and chanted while carrying signs, flags and umbrellas as the march began at the provincial legislature.
