Antifa militants forcefully interrupted a peaceful “Education over Indoctrination” protest, leading to a frenzy of violent altercations and arrests. The protest, held in Toronto, was aimed at rallying against perceived radical gender ideology and LGBTQ indoctrination in Canadian classrooms.
The peaceful assembly, organized by Chris Elston, known as “Billboard Chris,” and Josh Alexander, convened outside Victoria Park College Institute and Annunciation Catholic School, drawing hundreds of individuals from varying backgrounds, including students, parents, and veterans.

Unforeseen violence erupted as black-clad Antifa and far-left agitators infiltrated the crowd, assaulting numerous protesters and members of the press.
Among the assaulted was 16-year-old Nick Alexander, brother to one of the event organizers, who was left bloodied after a brutal encounter with an Antifa militant, whose identity was concealed behind a mask.

Strikingly, the young, injured Nick was also detained by Toronto police, reportedly held in a law enforcement van, away from the turmoil.
A witness reported that an Antifa militant not only attacked Nick but also robbed him of his hat. The altercation escalated as tensions between Antifa and other protesters intensified, resulting in more violent acts.
Journalist Mocha Bezirgan, another victim of the aggressive attacks, voiced his concern, stating, “Fascists attacked me for trying to record them beating up a man. All Canadians who believe in freedom of the press and right to peaceful protest should condemn the violent acts of intimidation by ‘ANTIFA.’”
The actions of the Toronto Police during the event sparked a wave of criticisms. Attendees and reporters lambasted them for arresting those who were peacefully protesting. A man, vociferously asserting his right to free assembly, was apprehended after being previously attacked by Antifa militants.
Josh Alexander, visibly infuriated by the events, condemned the Toronto Police Department for their arrest of his brother, Nick, a victim of violent assault. He criticized the department’s approach, stating, “It’s easier for the police to arrest the two people that are victims rather than the entire crowd of perverted and corrupted unions.”
Furthermore, co-organizer Chris Elston expressed his dismay at the police’s actions, questioning, “What are we doing arresting people who are getting punched? Everything is upside down.”
Elston, who helped orchestrate the event to “create awareness about what I consider to be the greatest child abuse scandal in modern medicine history,” was particularly critical of the police’s arrests of the assaulted, emphasizing the seemingly inverted moral compass guiding the law enforcement response.
The event highlighted the volatile tensions and the unsettling convergence of peaceful assembly and violent disruption, raising questions about the role of law enforcement in maintaining peace and order during such tumultuous times.
