Women's housing protest ends in four arrests

What started hopefully, with activists carrying banners calling for an "end to violence against women," ended with the arrest of four women.

More than 150 women's rights activists took to the streets yesterday, and later set up a makeshift tent city at St. Jamestown West Park, when police came in on horses and arrested several of them.

The initially peaceful stand took a nasty turn when police descended on anti-poverty protestors occupying an abandoned building at 4 Howard St in the Bloor and Sherbourne area.
