An intimate look at the protesters outside of Toronto Police Headquarters.
In a show of solidarity against anti-Black racism in the city, Black Lives Matter Toronto has spent more than 30 hours out in the cold.
The group initially pitched a tent city Sunday night at Nathan Phillips Square to protest the decision not to charge the officer who fatally shot Andrew Loku last July. They later moved to Toronto Police Headquarters, where their tents, tarps, and food were seized by officers. Still, the protesters remain peaceful, their occupation of the sidewalk out front symbolic of their desire for change.
