ARO protests at G20


“Stop the autism crisis! ABA NOW!”
This rallying cry echoed across Queen’s Park today as parents of Autism Resolution Ontario demonstrated against Ontario’s inadequate, neglectful and harmful autism “intervention” policies at the G20 protest (see attached photo).
Despite the confiscation of ARO’s banner poles by police, which were deemed as potential weapons, and ongoing rain, ARO parents persisted in sharing their mission to achieve more accessible ABA therapy for kids with autism in this province with the public and other protesters, and our public display also attracted the attention of
media.
The ARO strategy to protest Saturday morning proved to be wise since chaos and destruction started soon after.
