The demands of the activists from the Swiss Consulate are:
1. The immediate release of all prisoners who remain detained and imcommuincate since the G8 summit.
2. The complete withdrawal of criminal charges against all activists present during the bridge action.
3. A transparant, independent public inquiry into the training and orders and the general policing/security policy that surrounded this G8 sunnit. This public inquiry should also contain a specific invesitigation of the police team responsible for cutting the rope that caused the fall and subsequent injuries to Martin Shaw and his fellow activists.
4. The Swiss government to sign a written statement committing to take full responsibility for the acts of its police. This commitment to culpability should include the pledge to fully compensate all injured parties present during the bridge action, and other individuals who have incurred medical or judicial costs as a result of violent repression by the apparantly immune Swiss police forces.
