If the policing concerned you at G20, have a look at what our American friends have to put up with and us before not too long.

Featuring first-person accounts and footage from more than forty cameras on the streets, 'Terrorizing Dissent' focuses on the story of dissent suppressed.

Some thoughts on the G20 police riot

07-04-2009 17:20

As has been said numerous times now, we need to take stock of the police riot on April 1st 2009 during the G20 protests. Although none of the tactics were that new, the level of intimidation and repression of public protest was entirely something different. I suppose this is the way things will be from now on.
