    A bit steep start, I think...
    не г двадцать


    Then you get about 95% of possible declinable and conjugable words wrong. ( the right one - ведет). You probably looked up in a dictionary, for example, for 'author', and picked the 'писать' translation. But it doesn't fit here - it's a verb, and the sentence is not about how Naomi writes or authors something, she _is_ an author.
    Then, for example, "g20 summit'. Not only it translates as the whole term - "саммит двадцатки", but 'вершина' means 'summit' only as a geographical term meaning 'hill', not some gathering.

    Now I will try to translate it back to English preserving the perceived meaning of the Russian text, hoping being not too snarky -
    A canadian man, an activist Naomi Klein to write popular an antiglobalization a new "no logo" leads a number from protesting when they wrapped an outer that Toronto a police a Headquarter denote behind the action into that method they say that police turned that G twenty peak of protest.

    Канадская журналистка Наоми Кляйн, автор популярной антиглобалистской новеллы «Нет логотипу», ведет (руководит??) сотни (-ями) протестующих, собравшихся снаружи штаб-квартиры полиции Торонто, требуя разобраться с тем, как полиция обращалась с митингующими во время саммита.

    You are a good teacher. I am learning. Everything is clear. Thank you ! I will pause for a few days. I will read grammar book over again. Everything is getting clearer and clearer as you correct my grammar. I am lucky to have a patient teacher like you.

    Reading real texts in real language is also strongly recommended. Pure dry grammar may easily bore one up to total demotivation.
