I thought these images from June 25 at the Justice For Our Communities rally and march in Toronto in relation to the G8 and G20 would help to show an alternative portrayal of the protests. In contrast to the violent images of protesters like the Black Bloc, these were civil and polite.

A quiet scene from the Justice for Our Communities rally, or the look of 'violent left-wing hippie radical anarchists?' Let's be reasonable and not succumb to misleading generalizations and cliches. (Jason To)
