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.
