20-08-2007 19:09

"A RIOT cop restrains a protester": The Sun (1)

"If you go over there, I will facilitate your lawful protest" said one of the commanding coppers outside the action that took place at Agrexco on Saturday afternoon.

His idea of a "lawful protest" became clear very quickly as his officers pushed us into a kettle and held us there until people were taken out one by one and searched under Section One of PACE, before being sent on our merry way. FIT photographers were on hand to photograph each individual as they were searched.

“JFK, 9/11 and War”

20-08-2007 15:51
