A Hamilton anarchist who is still the only person arrested in connection to the Pride violence June 15 is in the midst of a hunger strike in Hamilton’s jail, say supporters.
Cedar Hopperton, 33, is in the Hamilton-Wentworth Detention Centre after being arrested Saturday for what police say was a parole violation that relates to Hopperton’s conviction for participating in a Locke Street vandalism spree. A condition of sentencing was to not be at protests that disturb the peace.
Hopperton has refused to eat since Saturday, says a statement from The Tower, a local anarchist social space. The statement also disputes the charge and says Hopperton was not at the Pride festival.
