March 15th, 2002 marks the sixth year of this international day of protest and solidarity against police brutality. This date was chosen because on March 15th, two children aged 11 and 12, were beaten by the Swiss police.

This day of denouncing police brutality is also an opportunity to create and strengthen ties between groups that work directly or indirectly against State brutality around the world. It permits the creation of an indispensable international solidarity in the fight against police forces that collaborate world-wide and are extremely well organized.

The primary targets of the police are the "undesirables of society," (the dangerous classes): the poor, the homeless, people of color, immigrants and persons with irregular status ("illegal immigrants" and people who work under-the-table), sex workers, activists, the marginalized, student activists, organized workers, queer, gender-based and feminist activists and people who question and don't accept the legitimacy of the authorities.

The September 11th events in the USA have created a genuine security craze the world over. Anti-terrorist laws, overtly fascist since they threaten the most fundamental rights, are being pushed through by government’s world-wide. Increased and systematic surveillance of all means of communications, tougher border controls (if not their closure), racist and anti-immigration laws that far from effecting potential terrorists directly hit students, asylum seekers, refugees, immigrants, etc. These incidents have also resulted in the sudden increase in budgets and powers given to different police forces at the international level, which clearly signals totalitarian repercussions against all undesirables, 'the dangerous classes.'

We have the responsibility to act and support all victims of State force.
