Police-G20-Protester Standoff Begins with Song, Ends in Chase

This clip begins quietly with a crowd of G20 protesters signing the Canada's national anthem to police in Toronto, where authorities pooled their efforts to control large-scale demonstrations surrounding the global economic summit this weekend. Soon into the song, however, in what looks like a sudden change of order at 1:08, the large team of police bolt forward, pushing over activists to the ground and chasing them down the street.
