BRUTALITY EVIDENCE, 20 LEFT SERIOUSLY INJURED

11:18PM Saturday: San Francisco Indymedia is beginning to receive reports of
a brutal attack on IMC reporters in Genoa. Italian Carabinieri stormed a school
which was housing independent media journalists, arbitrarily beating and
arresting people. Many folks were jumping out windows to get away from the
invasion. The police stole mini-discs, video, wallets, passports and personal
journals. Across the street, police had begun a mass beating at an activist
organization center, attacking people while they slept. Keep watching
Indymedia for news as we receive it! Italian police have also attempted to
infiltrate Indymedia servers. See the GSF for background on the G8 and
protester issues.

Monday, 4pm, Anti-G8 Solidarity Demo in San Francisco: The emergency
demo begins at 4pm at the Italian Consulate, 2590 Webster at Broadway in San
Francisco. Come out and stand in solidarity with G8 protesters in Genoa and
across the world!

Good heavens, where there is smoke there is fire. It's amazing how so many people are completely innocent while they are trashing other people's cities. Then when they get hurt in the process they go into shock??? PLEEEEEZE
Why are you so surprised?

I am always surprised at the fake shock and whining of so called activists. Is anyone surprised that the Italian pigs unleashed an attack on the Indy Media folks? People should have been sleeping in shifts, and those awake should have been armed. Not to mention all media systems should have had a live feed to some backup system. You cannot bake a cake without breaking a few eggs. I laugh at you wealthy international tourists and fair weather activists. With regard to the protester who was killed in Genoa, was he or was he not charging a police car with something in his hand and the intent to do damage? He paid the price for mounting an insufficient attack. He should have moved faster, struck harder, and relied less on the crowd to back him up! He knew what he was up against.

Your observation is very superficial. And this is understandable,
because you don't know the facts. If you go on italy.indimedia.org
you can see pictures of what happened.
There were 300000 people protesting against the G8 and nobody
in the US knew anything.
Police didn't stop (there are pictures) the Black Blockers that
were trashing, not the city as you said, but banks, McDonalds, etc..
and they attacked pacific protester a little while later.
