The policing at the G20 protests was extremely violent and agressive. Peaceful protesters were attacked and beaten, many of them suffering injuries. We`ve all seen the videos of police laying into the climate campers who stood there with their hands in the air calmly stating "this is not a riot". And now we see film evidence that Ian Tomlinson, who was not even a protester, was brutally attacked from behind with a baton, before being shoved hard to the ground by a vicious cop. Ian Tomlinson died minutes later - I call this MURDER and it happened on Jacqui Smith`s watch!!
This is a call out for a National Demonstration in Redditch, the constituency of Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary.
Demonstrate against the increasingly violent and aggressive policing at peaceful protests. Demonstrate against the erosion of civil liberties in our so called democracy. Demand that Jacqui Smith ensures that the officers who murdered Ian Tomlinson are brought to justice.
Let`s see how Jacqui Smith likes it when 1,000`s of protesters turn up in her home town demanding JUSTICE!!!
Saturday 18th April - 12 noon outside Redditch Town Hall.
The town hall is about 10 minutes walk from the train station. http://www.multimap.com/s/QKjPxY9S
