An activist arrested by police at Saturday's G-7 demonstration in Halifax was granted bail Tuesday.
Aaron Koleszar, 28, of Belle River, P.E.I., is charged with being a member of an unlawful assembly on Lower Water Street and violating a previous court order by failing to keep the peace.
Mr. Koleszar, a veteran of environmental protests in P.E.I. who was also arrested in Seattle in 1999 during protests against the World Trade Organization, returns to court Aug. 6 for election and plea.
Another protester, Christopher Arsenault, 18, of Halifax, was released on bail Monday on similar charges.
He and Mr. Koleszar were among 31 people arrested when about 500 police officers faced off against 200 demonstrators outside the meeting of finance ministers from the seven most powerful industrialized countries.
