So the weekend upon us.
I agreed months ago to go on this adventure with my GF's uncle.
Now personally, I will not be so much "pro-testing" as it is documenting.
However, these last few days it really really seems like the universe is trying to tell me NOT TO GO THERE.
Monday night I went to a gas station and there was some ruffians, my gut feeling was I should have just kept going, but i needed those smokes now.
THe guys tried to get me to buy cigarettes for them while the guy was right there.
In turn, these guys tried to lure me into the shadows by the building to have a "chat".
I got in my car and flipped em one, ironically I seen a good friend of mine on the way out of the gas station so if I did in fact get into trouble, I
had a big man behind thank god.
That night I went to bed telling my self.
For now I'm going to trust my gut feeling.
Well low and behold, I'm watching BBC news, reading the sub-line about how they arrested a man in the GTA for explosives. This shook me a bit.
The immediate line after that was a earth quake reported across the GTA. Now I didn't feel this as I was in the car.
However many of my friends did.
At this point I'm thinking could this be an omen of what is to come?
And of course after that a few tornado's touch down the same time.
Maybe the people of the past weren't so crazy for following these signs.
I must let you guys know ( if you already don't) we spent ONE BILLION DOLLARS on security. 1/4 what we put into direct job creation this year.
They have bought sound cannons. They have also bought water cannons on top of this. Lets not forget the thousands of security guards that they hired
from a BC security company.
I will be honest.I have this feeling in my gut saying...Don't go.
But it is my duty as this year I will be heading into college for a 3 year journalism course. One day I wish to do something along the lines of
foreign correspondent. So I might as well go into one of the risky situations on my front porch.
Much of my family is worried my Girlfriend included.
I will be tagging along a friend to. My main goal is to get some really good shots of the protest.
And in case anything does go down get it on camera.
I have to say, the G20 causes problems alone, but they have SHUT DOWN our core.
Those leaders are going to come see a GHOST CITY.
They have put up concrete walls all around the city, and set up a protest area.
In conclusion, wish me your luck, I think I'm going to need it.
