Some of the initial money raised will be going to aid the legal defence of those arrested during the Quebec Summit of the Americas; while the GASCD Board will continue to look to assist other groups around the world as the project grows.

Collective Opposed to Police Brutality (COBP) is an autonomous collective bringing together people who have been victims, witnesses and/or who are simply concerned about police brutality and other abuses perpetrated by the police. The collective began as a defence committee for those who were arrested after the 1995 demonstration against Human Life International, a far-right group. Faced with extensive repression, "social cleansing" and the ongoing, increasing impunity of the Montreal police, COBP decided to organize itself on a permanent basis to continue the fight against police brutality.
