One week before she began serving a 16th month sentence related to her participation in organizing the G20 protests, UTA sat down with Amanda Hiscocks for a wide ranging discussion about her situation as a political prisoner and her analysis of the fallout of state repression against those organizing against the G20 summit in Toronto in 2010. This interview will be published in a forthcoming issue of UTA, but we are making the raw audio available here so that activists can get a better a sense of Mandy’s assessment of the features of state repression and what needs to be done to support the G20 political prisoners.
Mandy is a member of the UTA advisory board, and has been a radical political activist working out of the town of Guelph, Ontario since the mid-1990s.
Note: Mandy is now incarcerated at the Vanier Detention Centre. She has a blog up at http://boredbutnotbroken.tao.ca/ and you can send letters to:
