G20 and Climate Camp protests
Bank of England and Bishopgate, City of London, London
(© urban75, 1st April 2009)
An important day out marred by violent, heavy handed, aggressive police.
A question to those who support the actions of the police on the day:
Do you think it is right that persons wishing to exercise their democratic right to peacefully protest on important issues that affect their everyday lives should be expected to put up with being imprisoned and deprived of food, water and sanitation for anything up to 12 hours?
In other words, do you endorse the state's campaign to effectively try and silence protest by making it such an uncomfortable ordeal that many people will be dissuaded from attending?
