After days of harrasement, illegal searches, false bomb scares, intimidation of the indy media, and mounting tensions, the Genoa Social Forumn has demanded the right to search the security forces in Genoa. Sighting that the Imigrant Rights demonstration on the 19th will be completely legal protestors have sighted the mounting police suppression as reason to search police compounds to make sure that no guns or chemicals such as tear gas will be used. Police, of course, have yet to respond to these demands and continue their own searches. This morning at 6:15 Stadium Carlini, where non-violent civil disobedient activists are residing, was searched. 100 riot police showed up, and a delegation of police officials searched the premises. They found nothing.If the police have the right to search protesters premises, then demonstrators should have the right to search police presmises!
