For those unfamiliar with the geography at EDO, the designated protest are is a 2 meter wide grass verge with a 40 foot vertical drop on one side and a road (exclusion zone) on the other. Several people fell over when the police charged and it was a matter of luck that nobody fell over the edge. Police harrassment continued but didn't dent a lively and noisy demonstration despite further violent and arbitrary arrests, including one where a man was snatched from the crowd and dragged accross the road by his neck.
PLEASE phone Chief Inspector Kerry Cox of Brighton police on 0845 6070999 to protest and enquire as to the condition of the detainees (the police summoned a medic after several arrests, but used force to prevent people with cameras and legal observers getting a view. The civil rights won by previous generations are being wiped out in the blink of an eye. We have to stand together to confront the growing repression anyone seeking social change faces.
