Hours after police announced they were “aggressively looking” for a Guelph woman they say is the ringleader of vandalism and mischief at Toronto’s G20 summit last month, she turned herself in to Peterborough police.
Kelly Pflug-Back, 21, pictured, is alleged to have trashed such businesses as Urban Outfitters, American Apparel and McDonald’s and is facing six new charges.
Police said Ms. Pflug-Back, originally from Norwood, was known to them “with regards to her involvement as a demonstrator, as an activist.”
Ms. Pflug-Back was charged late last year for assault during Guelph’s Olympic Torch relay and is a self-described anti-poverty activist.
What police did not reveal is that Ms. Pflug-Back had already been arrested on June 27, during the G20, and was released on strict bail conditions. Since then, the young woman was to be in her parents’ care.

it's also an expression of how people who are non-status, homeless, racially profiled, or working in the sex trade are treated EVERY DAY by police. I am surprised that a lot of activists who talk about oppression were shocked by this treatment.
Generally, I think that homophobia and transphobia are a construct of the capitalist patriarchal society we live in, which is epitomized by the G20 summit :)
Kelly posted a link to the Pride Shame Awards, slamming them for banning Queers Against Israeli Apartheid (which as we all know was later reversed), and directly beneath this she linked to an article claiming the CIA was conducting medical experiments comparable to Dr. Mengele's.
No doubt you will be shocked to learn that she is also an anti-Semite. On May 25 she changed her status to "Genocide & juice." She also posted several anti-Israel items following the fauxtilla, and promoted the protest of Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Toronto.
She also posted tips for her "comrades" on dealing with law enforcement:
Well we do agree on one thing, albeit for totally different reasons: PRIDE should ditch the corporate sponsors.
