George Horton in Jail Again for G20 Charges

George Horton, G20 Prisoner, has returned to jail after being released pending his appeal, which was recently denied.

George Horton is being held in Lindsay, ON at the Central East Correctional Facility. He is expected to do at least 4 months there, up to 8 months (at worst).

George participated courageously in the mass demonstrations against the G20 in June of 2010. He has remained courageous and intransigent in the face of the repression of the courts and jail.

Since June of 2010, he has supported G20 defendants and prisoners. Rather than seeking the state and corporate media’s mercy by condemning the diverse tactics of community-based resistance mounted against the G20 in2010, George has consistently condemned this repression.

If you wish to write to George send him letters at the following address:

George Horton
C/O Central East Correctional Centre
541 Hwy 36, Box 4500
Lindsay, ON K9V 4S6
