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.
