Police crimes on anti fascist protest - the evidence

The following footage is taken from yesterday's anti-fascist protest in Glasgow city centre which was harassed and detained by Strathclyde police. We uploaded this report yesterday detailing the course of the day’s events http://glasgowdefencecampaign.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/strathclyde-police-uniformed-racists.html

The police kettle on Buchanan Street, with officer numbers far beyond what was required, was nothing more than a training exercise in crowd control. A full body and bag search was placed on people as a condition for exiting the police kettle under section 60 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1994/33/section/60. The one man who refused to be searched in a brave show of defiance was arrested by officers.

A new generation of officers are being trained in how to limit, harass and shutdown protest. If we are to be fit for the fight in defence of and for the expansion of our rights of political protest we must likewise get educated and organised! 

GDC hall of shame to follow...
