Vancouver activist Dan Wallace has become a fixture at local protests over the past couple of years. His first high-profile moment was shortly before last year’s May Day march when he called on a group of masked anarchists to use violence against the police. If there’s one thing that can be said for Wallace it’s that he’s got cajones, he was surrounded by at least a dozen cops when he said that. Curiously, despite the fact protesters used violence against the police, he walked free without charges.
Since then Wallace has been everywhere you don’t want to be. He was one of the primary figures at the Oppenheimer Park occupation, was arrested protesting Chevron on Burnaby Mountain and later arrested there protesting Kinder Morgan. He started off this year’s May Day celebration manning the BBQ during the daytime, and inserting himself at the front of the police line where a gang of rabid protesters clashed into the cops. Some protesters got arrested, but Dan walked away that night.
This week the same
thugs activists degenerates who organized May Day have announced a new “Commercial Drive Street Party”, inspired by the violence we saw on May 1st. The event page is only about 4-5 days old, but we’ve seen some of the usual suspects- including Dan Wallace, who appears to be promoting a crime that sent two people to prison after the Toronto G20.
