At least 100 members of a Montreal-based protest group were arrested during the G20 summit in Toronto, a spokeswoman for the Anti-Capitalist Convergence group said.
Danie Royer, who was among the hundreds of people who travelled from Montreal to Toronto ahead of the G20 summit, said she believes roughly 100 group members were arrested, and she is still waiting for word from another 200 others.
