    Very good programme, especially highlighting the Radley Lakes Community Protest and the tactic of criminalisation used against ordinary citizens trying to safeguard their community's environment, health and well-being for future generations.

    Save Radley Lakes saw the open use of hired "security management" who proceeded to act as thugs against the peaceful community campaigners. This was and is a noteworthy advent. Protestors at Radley Lakes were trying to prevent the dumping of ash into their lakes that contained mercury, cadmium and arsenic. "Large corporations are able to suspend freedoms we thought to enjoy":
    The above quote and link from Channel4 News in March 2007, highlights what ordinary people are up against in their fight against the injurious acts of multinational corporations.

    In another part of the world, the fight to save ancestral lands from pollution and environmental devastation resulting from tar sands oil-extraction by had £53 million donated to put toward the costs of the lawsuits needed to fight against the pollution of the environment.

    It just keeps getting worse for the police:

    AnnO'Neemus Is so vanilla

    Just heard about that on the radio. I hope the officers involved feel ashamed of their behaviour.

    But will it make any difference to policing of protests in the future?

    I just heard an interview with this woman or Radio 4.
    Absolutely shocking description of what she experienced.
    The interview will be broadcast in full on tonight's Newsnight.

    Maybe kettling is over, and maybe it's over before the Oxford Circus case gets to Strasbourg.

    of course if people put half the effort into avoiding being kettled in the first place that they do into moaning about it after the event then the tactic of kettling would have been stopped as ineffective many years ago.

    A total of 37 people have been charged over the G20 protests in April, City of London police said today. The force released its first full list of charges brought since the demonstrations. They include violent disorder, arson, criminal damage and assaulting the police. Eleven people are charged with impersonating a police officer in connection with an incident on 1 April when a group of activists were stopped outside the Royal Bank of Scotland offices on Bishopsgate while driving a blue-painted armoured car.

    Police list here:

    Corax Read my blog you bastards.

    The impersonating charge will be thrown out, surely? No one in their right mind would think the Hijackers were even vaguely attempting to be taken for filth.

    One person charged with causing fear/provocation of violence. I witnessed several hundred doing that, but rest assured, none of them will be charged.

    I presume the person charged with assaulting a police officer will plead self defence.
