Here is a very brief summary -in pictures, videos and a few words- of the G8 events of late, beriddled as they have been by police brutality [videos below], agent provocateurs (which in any decent journalism would have entirely overshadowed a few radicalised, state repressed groups’ retaliation for the violence commenced by the authorities) and the completely distorted “journalism” by the corporate press:
“ORDNUNG MUSS SEIN – “Merkelst” dir dass!”
The Art of Policing and Protesting…..
….and just to make sure that you know: the police will hit anyone – I repeat anyone:
…even if you are a mainstream organisation like Greenpeace, the global police state will attack to kill.
But there are also some creative, uplifting images! Way to go, comrades!
In conclusion, although not very good quality video, sarcastically presented in German text, but the images speak for themselves: police brutality with thick, weapon-like gloves, business as usual.
Finally, this video with German text and speech where in the final interview a bystander notes that the “autonomous groups” were attacked by the police without any prior provocation – and “strangely” the attack came right when the autonomous groups were passing a construction site where stones and other material were abundant (we’re talking about a police operation that costs millions and millions of Euros and a legal, declared march with a pre-decided route – yet there is a whole street fight arsenal freely available in the very moment that the police attacks unprovoked???).
The struggle continues…..
: This is the only “proof”, so far, but there is surely more to come: – the incident was distorted by German ZDF into a case of “peaceful protesters distancing themselves from a violent one”, rehearsing the old familiar divide and conquer strategy of the state and the pseudo-state NGOs (direct stream link).
At the Genoa, 2001 G8 – the proof was quite clear: #A / #B – from Nadir.org
: The gloves, which are reinforced with metals and presumably space age things like kevlar, weapons, really, look something like this.
