uk.indymedia journalist in coma
24 Jul 2001
uk.indymedia journalist in coma following beating during saturday night's police raid on the genoa imc headquarters.
my translation from the french post [with a little help from altavista]:

Our comrade Skye, of IndyMedia UK, continues to hover between life and death after being [beaten] by the Italian
cops during the attack at the Diaz school, accross from the building which housed the IMC. Sky, who we have
spent three days with, did not move from his workstation - did not take part in the demonstrations even to relay
information, had gone out to get some air in the schoolyard. The cops bludgeoned him violently, then struck him on
the ground, where he was bathed in his own blood. He was taken away unconscious. According to the latest
information, Sky is comatose after undergoing [surgery on his spleen]. We ask collectives, protest groups and
supporters of the imprisoned and wounded to take this information into account.
