08-07-2005 14:00To close off the final day of the G8 summit, a special report I was saving for the end, and perhaps take my cue from the media to spread some wild rumours and maybe scare some people. Behind the scenes at Live 8 and the G8.
On Monday 4th July during the Carnival for Full Enjoyment in Edinburgh it became clear that the police were targeting the street medics for harassment and arrest. Medics were subjected to many stop and searches, five-six medics were arrested and their medic van seized. This pattern was repeated on some of the following days.
Indymedia spoke with two medics who had been arrested and mistreated on Monday 4th July. They received bail conditions that meant they had to leave the area and sign on at their local police stations every day until 10th July, thus removing them from the streets. We spoke to them just before they had to leave.
