Protestors pound on glass of TD Canada Trust while chanting

TORONTO –  People protesting with Occupy Toronto pounded on the glass doors of a TD Canada Trust at King and Bay this afternoon.

 

They chanted “We’re not leaving.” as they protested outside of the bank. 

 

There were no violent confrontations. 

 

The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says more than 600 of its members will march to King and Bay Streets in downtown Toronto around 1 p.m.

They expect to join several other groups, including the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty, the United Steelworkers and protesters from Occupy Toronto.

CUPW’s national president, Denis Lemelin, says members of his union want to show their contempt for a wealthy elite they believe undermines workers’ rights.

The union, which is holding its national convention in the city, has taken up a collection to help Occupy Toronto demonstrators.

The protesters set up camp in a park down the street nearly two weeks ago, part of a global movement to condemn what they call a growing gap between the rich and the poor.
