Fascistic Danish Police Force Threatens to Shoot Activists!

Posted on Updated on

The policing of COP15 has been totalitarian and democratic rights routinely suspended: no one is considered innocent until proven guilty, but simply arrested “preventatively”. Close to two thousand – 968 in one swoop – were  arrested without committing any offence and been left to sit for hours in a freezing cold street, in their own piss and shit, with plastic strips around their bleeding wrists. Some, including delegates, have been severely beaten.

There have been riots in the animal cage prisons (illegal according to Amnesty) and some spokespeople have been arrested and will be charged with – so far all taking place behind closed doors! –  the intentions to be violent against the police and for the intentions to incite riots. In part based on phone tapping of interviews with journalists and  alleged illegal tapping of Greenpeace. This is what democracy looks like! The police has since admitted that they “only performed two illegal acts of surveillance of phones, nothing more” and Johan Martini Reimann, Director of Copenhagen Police, in order to calm the waters with an unwitting irony, ensures the public that “they have not operated in a manner differently from normal“. Nice to know that the Danish Police routine breaks the law – and as usual revealing to hear what total disregard for the rule of law that this institution has!

In other words, the rule of law no longer rules (did it ever?) the little rotten Duck Pond. There has been world wide reporting of the fascistic policing measures (see for instance: “Copenhagen: the sound of silence: Denmark’s reputation is being destroyed by police action outside the summit and the gagging of NGOs and poor nations inside“), which, of course, does not really surprise those familiar with the Danish police force and political system. Chavez has interestingly stated that Denmark is more repressive than Venezuela.

In connection with a funny, rather innocent, yet cheeky and coordinated Greenpeace action last night in front of and inside the Danish Parliament – Christiansborg – the Chief Inspector of Copenhagen Police, Per Larsen (currently accused of covering up a terrorist act for political gain) , now severely threaten people. First he states that such an action is “as stupid as anything can be. When you do that kind of thing, you are going to pay for it. And that bill is being prepared now“:

»Det er så dumt, som noget kan være. Når man laver den slags, så kommer man til at betale for det. Og den regning er ved at blive udstedt nu«, siger chefpolitiinspektør Per Larsen fra Københavns Politi.

That’s not enough for Per Larsen, however, who also threatens to shoot activists. He says that “the risk is present if anyone feels threatened. When you do such a thing you expose yourself to risks”:

»Den risiko er også til stede, hvis nogen havde følt sig truet. Når man gør den slags, så udgør man da en risiko for sig selv«, siger Per Larsen.

As we have seen throughout COP15 the Danish police do whatever they can, whatever the want, with whatever means necessary to repress protests and to intimidate and scare people from participating in saving the world from corrupt politicians and greeedy corporate pigs, but this is the first time that they directly threaten to shoot people. (Of course they have infamously shot at protesters in Copenhagen before – in 1993 when 113 rounds were fired at an anti-EU demonstration. Denmark just is like that!)

Obviously poor little Per Larsen is upset that the Greenpeace activists took the piss out of him and his imbecile force and now he wants revenge and speaks like a little boy who has had his toy taken away.

While activists climbed lamp posts etc. in front of the parliament building, three others, dressed in appropriate galla fashion entered the fine dinner where the Danish Queen were receiving the “leaders” of states for some pompous food and drink. The exact same style of action was carried out a week earlier in Brussels. EDIT: The four Greenpeace activists have still not been released, causing the Spanish state to “help” one of them, namely the Spanish head of Greenpeace, Juan Lopéz de Uralde.

All bets are off now, all targets – by any means necessary – are legitimate, it seems.

    Thank GOD it was just Greenpeace. What if it had been someone who meant real harm? Like those violent foreign anarchists we keep hearing about, for example.

    Said mortenkrausenielsen@post.tele.dk from IP: , 0x5738b989.hjnqu1.dynamic.dsl.tele.dk):

    Please leave Denmark to its quietly peaceful, laborious and decent inhabitants. Take your yelling, riots, vandalism and disrespect towards hardworking people and the representative democracy elsewhere. Kudos to the Danish Police for preventing a repetition of Seattle, Turin and Gothenburg!

      Well, then: Please leave Africa, Asia, South America and the rest of the world alone – stop your disgusting, extravagant lifestyle that produces more waste, and consumes more meat per inhabitants than even the USA, you pathetic little Danish, small-minded idiot. See how far you get with your useless life without the exploitation of the rest of the world that is inherent in your supermarket shopping patterns and your general consumption of goods that is paid for by the rest of the world.

      Du fatter ikke en skid, din halvhjerne, taenk dig om, laes en bog og informer dig din mide, din parasit, dit latterlige, overforbrugende, fremmedfjendske svin.

        High fives Colono. Thank you. That was very well put.

        Excellent blog!

    Well, in my family we’re self-sufficient with wind power and ecological food and we have no business with the countries you mention apart from contributions to child education. Don’t even own a car. But I like peace and quiet and dislike people travelling around the globe smashing cities and burning things. I think you have a serious problem with dissenting views and tolerance…and a foul language.

    FFS! Colono check your facts.

    For one Danes do not consume more meat per capita then the US and in fact we are very far from. That figure came out of a calculation which did not take into account that Denmark exports a lot of meat to the rest of the world.

    As for the waste production – guess what that is wrong again. And it also does not take into account that we recycle a lot and most of what is not recycled is burned for heating not dumped (or exported to the third world).

    Honestly all the ugly words you are using just make you looking pathetic. You did not write the worst one in English but they pretty well tell how you handle people which disagree with you.

    For the benefit of those not understanding Danish let me translate some of the things Colono called Danese. “Half-a-brain”, “Magot”, “parasite”, “pig”…

    For me that is very telling for how the oh so innocent protesters deal with those which does not agree. Colono has also forgotten to tell how those innocent protesters threatened other protesters not agreeing with the use of Molotov cocktails, firework bombs, paint bombs and overall destruction of property.

    Colono you are a sign that we live in a free and democratic world. If not someone would have locked you up and thrown away the key.

      A lot of danger, some serious threats from those – who are they again ? – those who cause the trouble? An-archists, did you call them? Terra-ists? Life and death, sex and birth and the little bits in between, I think a bit of foul language will stand as a minor offense in the hour of reckoning, but ready to take it I stand, well, sort of, sit,

      This is kind of sweet…

      and there is always this:


      … should have been to bed now, but after all… had to attempt to respond, probably failed, but made a few points a long the way and if the road to hell isn’t paved, don’t blame me!

    You are right! So very right. My bad. Honestly, drunk and feeling slightly loose at the end of the week, falling into the bottle, one glass too many after the bottle that really should have been the last. I did it. Again. Had that drink too many, took that step too far.

    My sincere apologies. Foul lanaguage, indeed.

    With regard to the LA Times article?!?! Does it really matter whether it was the top 10% or the top 1%?

    “Meat consumption has been linked to climate change because of widespread deforestation to create pastureland or to grow feed crops and because of the gases, such as methane, released into the atmosphere by belching, flatulent livestock. In an analysis of worldwide meat-eating trends spanning 40 years, the U.N.’s Food and Agriculture Organization concluded that Denmark topped the carnivore list.”



    Does it matter whether there are direct costs between anyone in the North living an easy life, while the global south are paying? It cannot ever be justified, except perhaps by way of racism. You are so right that I was out of order, another week of repression simply dragged me down. Too overwhelming, not again. Not again.

    The anger of feeling stuck in it all… too much, day after day… It becomes difficult to keep a happy face…

    “In 2002, the last year of the study, the average Dane consumed a whopping 321 pounds of meat — nearly a pound a day. For Americans, the figure was 275 pounds.”

    Everyone deserves some critique, if a bit of foul language can bring that about, then we’re on track…

    Keep it going Colono, don’t lose heart. These “it’s worse in other countries so it gets us off the hook” people will get theirs one day.

    Everyone who can critically think realises how the “foreign anarchist” threat was built up to excuse them from what they knew they were going to do to stop dissent.

    Let’s just be grateful that the people who came to the Conference of Parties to protest were peaceful (if not law-abiding). Had Rent-a-Mob shown, the Danish police would surely have deaths to explain.

    Wonderful article, and thanks for collecting these videos.

    I don’t think I see an RSS button anywhere… 😦

    Although I might agree with your political views I dont agree with your meddling with the truth. This article is grossly overexaggerated, and the claims of violence/beatings are completely unsupported by evidence, and as such these accusations are nothing but slander.

    Stick to the truth or at least make sure that unsupported claims are mentioned as such, and not as facts… Otherwise this blog has no relevance for anybody but you and other people who de facto agrees with your views…
