    It's part of police training to pick certain groups and only beat them up. Environazis are at the top of the list.

    What part of the enviromentals was THE most peaceful do you not seem to grasp?

    Perhaps they are crazy in US but in Europe, they are the most peaceful and non violent

    Indymedia London | Videos | Show | film of police attack on G20 climate camp

    around 19:45 police push into the south side of the climate camp on bishopsgate. this short film shows the campers calling out "this is not a riot" and holding their arms in the air, while riot police surge forward wielding batons and shields in an unprovoked attack.

    bikes, tents and personal belongings were damaged and lost in the attack. several people were injured. reports of several arrests. at one point a small group of people are trapped between riot police coming in from a side entrance on the east, and more pushing up from the south.
    It couldn't have had anything to do with the fact that they were camping in the middle of the road, could it? Were they supposed to be there? How many times were they asked to move before the police forced them to?

    this footage must be seen by the justice committee on 'policing protests'. almost every one of their recommendations are broken. reports have come in of wide use of anti-terror legislation and also intimidation of photographers.
    A lot of the "direct action" crowd could rightly be considered terrorists; especially the guys who arrived with weapons and police uniforms.

    In the UK it's different from any other place on earth.

    The roads were shut down Bullet and the Government was informed of it weeks prior to that.

    When a protest is occuring in UK, All concerned roads are shut down for a certain period. This was a legal protest and the police cannot remove people for no reason.

    Terrorists for protesting? Jesus christ
