Description: "05/09/1970: Another demonstration against Kent state killings, and U.S. actions in Cambodia and Vietnam took place at the U.S. Consulate. This time, however, a fight started between the protestors and Edmund Burke Society (EBS) members during this demonstration. Seven windows in three Eaton's stores were broken during the excited chase that followed after the confrontation between officers and protesters outside the U.S. Consulate General. Police moved into separate the protesters and the EBS. Approximately 1,500-5,000 people were in front of the Consulate. Police arrested 91 people, eleven of which were EBS members. All of them were released without bail on the understanding that they woud appear in the court to answer a joint charge of creating a disturbance. A Communist Party of Canada - Marxist-Leninist member was wrestled by the police."
