Today the Gardai lost control of the city. For some bizzare reason, the police seemed completely unprepared for the level of violence that the FAIR / Loyalist march would provoke. This story captures the events in chronological order in pictures. read full story / add a comment

The facade of a trial against the police ended in a not guilty verdict with little chance of their victims ever receiving compensation. As the verdict was read out this lunchtime the activists walked out of court shouting that they had had enough of this bullshit. The whitewashed trial of two police officers in Switzerland, acquitted of the charges of causing severe bodily harm. The two victims narrowly escaped with their lives after a police officer cut a climbing rope during a protest action against the G8 in Evian, France in 2003. Despite clear video evidence that the police officers had cut the rope the judge supported police impunity by ruling that they had made mistakes but that these were understandable in the context of the stress they were under!

The prosecutor (lawyer of state) is demanding that the two policemen be acquitted. He is clearly trying to turn the situation upside down and make the accused (aggressors) into the victims of the police intervention...

The verdict will be announces Friday, 17th of February at 11.45 am. We call for everyone to come to the court for the verdict.

Prosecuting the police involved in the Aubonne Case

In June 2003, an affinity group of people from around Europe, including Irish, German, French, British, Dutch and Belgium blockaded the Aubonne Bridge with a climbing action in order to stop a G8 delegation from reaching the summit in Evian. The police cut the climbing rope and nearly killed two activists. Now the policeman who cut the rope and his senior officer are in court. They are charged with body harm with negligence… read full story / add a comment

The film covers the day of blockades in an agit prop, music video style. It tries to explain the frustration of the previous 2 days of being " penned in " by the police at protests and the contrast between the direct action blockades and what was going on at Live 8.

"the 2005 World Summit is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for the world to come together and take action on grave global threats that require bold global solutions. It is also a chance to revitalize the United Nations itself. It is, in short, an opportunity for all humankind." - Secretary General Kofi Annan.

Ireland sent Bertie and Dermot Ahern. Think about that for a moment and consider the quality of intellect, sincerity, ability, that the Ahern brothers' representation of your state implies for the quality of that sent by the other 153 nations. read full story / add a comment
