Dave Vasey with G20 convicted ringleader Alex Hundert

Dave Vasey is a career activist who has been active in the Tar Sands, climate change, No One Is Illegal, The Ruckus Society, and other Marxist causes. Dave was also the first person to be arrested during the G20 after he did some cop-baiting and started ‘investigating’ the fence that was setup there.

I first met Dave at the Occupy Toronto Direct Action committee- the first OT meeting I attended. He was polite during the first two meetings, and was accepting my contributions. Then, out of nowhere, he sent me an email before the third meeting and told me not to go.

Not wanting to cause an interruption, I skipped that meeting. Then, after speaking with other Occupiers who supported me, I went to the meeting after that. Dave approached me there and said I couldn’t stay- despite the fact that three people there wanted me to stay, and that I’d not done anything to interrupt or upset anyone at OT. The reasoning he gave was I couldn’t stay because I wrote about Harsha Walia and her insistence on allowing violence at Occupy Vancouver.

I made an agreement with Dave that I would write a letter and share it with other people in the committee (and across OT) and decided to leave that day, not wanting to interrupt the meeting. Unfortunately, once the letter was ready, Dave had people cut me off of all of the OT mailing lists and Facebook pages so that I couldn’t distribute the letter.

Since then, Dave has slandered me to dozens of people, tried to block my being in public places, and physically assaulted me once.

Dave can be identified by a tattoo on is body that says “Love is the revolution”. He has been described to me as a ‘serial womaniser’ by one occupier. Two women at OT have complained to me that, despite the fact he knew they had partners, Dave is continuously leering and has occasionally hit on them.

One occupier told me that Dave “is king” of Occupy Toronto. Currently he is acting as the defacto leader in this leaderless organization. I once argued with him that Occupy is a leaderless movement, he vehemently disagreed with me and said “there are leaders!” Strange…

Dave is not the type of guy that reasonable people want to see leading anything…

Censored! A Letter to the People of Occupy Toronto

The story about how, out of nowhere, Dave came and insisted I leave Occupy Toronto because I had written about Harsha Walia in Vancouver. Also a great explanation of how Harsha killed the anti-Olympic movement in 2010.
