The Southern Ontario Anarchist Resistance (SOAR) was a loose network of anarchists who came together in the lead up to the G20 in Toronto in June, 2010 to critique and combat the destructive policies and illegitimate authority of the G20 member states, the militarization of the city of Toronto in preparation for the Summit, and the colonization of indigenous lands that allowed the Canadian state to host the Summit in the first place. Some of the alleged co-conspirators were also members of SOAR. During its short lifespan, SOAR issued call-outs for actions and statements addressing the topics of the Themed Days of Resistance that took place the week before the G20 Summit.
Please note that despite the Crown’s assertions not all those charged as the G20 Main Conspiracy Group see themselves as members of SOAR.
