Protester Denise Ogonoski can be seen in the back seat, being taken away by police. She was taken in because she had climbed up a light pole to put up a Tibetan flag outside the Chinese consulate. One thing that concerned me after this happened, was I overheard another protester asking where Denise was taken, and the police officer didn’t seem to know or care to find out.
Interestingly, her apparent arrest wasn’t mentioned in any media that I read or saw. There was only a modest amount of coverage of the entire protest.
This is one of the pictures I took in downtown Calgary of a protest for Tibetan freedom against the Chinese government. Protesters started at Olympic Plaza and marched to the Chinese consulate.
