These images are from the RT (TV) news coverage of the massive Madrid demo on Sept 25. The first image (1:36 into the Youtube video) shows 2 undercover cops, wearing jeans and black-bloc style hoodies, dragging a protestor along the ground by his arms. The hoodie on the left then drops the protestor's right arm, as a helmeted and truncheon-carrying riot cop takes over, grabbing the protestor's leg (2nd and 3rd images). Another cop joins in as they continue dragging the protestor towards the police van (4th image). Then the 2nd undercover cop rejoins the 1st hoodie (as picked-out by the blue light), both helping the uniformed cops to complete the arrest (5th image). Click on the images to enlarge. You can see the full sequence within the original video here -

How the feck can Indymedia "cover up" a news article that has been on Russia Today and reported in the fekin' liberal fekin Groiniad?
If you read the guidelines for posting to the site you will see that it says MSM reposts will in general be hidden.
Articles and/or comments may be hidden for the following reasons:
Reposts: Articles that are simply pasted from corporate news sites. Please write something original, by all means link to articles elsewhere and quote from them but don't just copy them.
And thats all you give us - links to corporate sites - no news, nothing.
So, here's some original content that didn't get hidden:
And here is the email address to write to if you want to complain about moderation: firstname.lastname@example.org - the newswire is for news not for complaints.
Use of the site is not compulsory - and if it upsets you so much then avoid it and stick to the corporate media or forums which welcome links from people who can't be arsed to write up an article.
Indymedia was a reaction to the bias of the corporate media, not a vehicle to highlight its articles.
