They actually weren't part of the QuAIA contingent. Nice try though Joanne.

Josephine said...

How can you tell, Anon?

They were all marching together.

Anon: please go get that asenapine prescription refilled asap.

No, they were marching after the QuAIA contingent because QuAIA told them not to march with them.

Josephine said...

Meh, watch my video. They were a part of the QuAIA Lonely Hearts Club Marching Band.

I watched your video (why don't you allow comments on YouTube, btw?)- the anti-cop people are at the very back, ahead of NION but behind QuAIA. Obviously, they were not part of the official QuAIA contingent.

Josephine said...

It may seem obvious to you, Anon, but it wasn't and isn't obvious to me.

That's why I put up the video: so people can see it and come to their own conclusions.

On my video, at the 5:11 mark, you see people holding a large banner with pink lettering (I think it says, "...Boycott Israeli Apartheid").

Immediately behind the banner is someone holding a pink sign that says, "Queers probe the police."

At 5:17, the "F*ck the police & capitalism" sign guy is in front of that banner.

At 5:23 you see "F*ck the police" and "Queers hate cops" right behind the banner (see their proximity to the guy with the pink "probe" sign).

Then there are a few people in black and at 5:33 you see the NION sign. Right after them that is another NION sign.

The NION people were a part of the QuAIA contingent. They often do protests together.

So, to me, they look like they all marched together as one group. There is no demarcation line or obvious separation.

Immediately behind Kulanu was the JDL yet Kulanu says the JDL was not part of their contingent. By your argument, they were.

Josephine said...

Anon, when and where did Kulanu Toronto say that? Do you have a link or reference so I can read it myself? Thanks.

Well, since I do not like jack booted thugs, I am not a great fan of cops either; but the persistence of the theme reflected in the signs here would seem to indicate a not-too-subtle desire for the marchers to have a bit of 'rough trade' sex with the cops.
I'm sure that if they could arrange it, Code Stink would provide a communal condom to be passed around.

Thanks for ruining my breakfast with that mental image, j3maccabee!
