City Police HQ
37 Wood Street
This protest is to show our anger and disaproval at the terrible tactics imposed upon protesters on the two G20 protest days (1st April, and 2nd April.)
People were stuck in an area without access to food, toilets and most importantly water, pushed back by police which caused health and safety issues as someone could quite easily have been crushed in the various crowds.
We also protest against the fact that the police relentlessly hit anyone who stood in their way including women and minors. When officers were asked questions they usually refused to speak - or when they did were extremely rude.
There was no access of 1st aid for those who had been injured, and many obtained head injuries for doing nothing wrong which is simply unacceptable.
We have to ask if the police had been more cooperative and listened to public concerns - would the man who died on the 1st of April?
We are protesting for the end of the 'kettling' tactic imposed by police on those days..and access to water and 1st aid in future protests with free entry and exit which is per our democratic right!
If you are a member of Facebook I would be very pleased if you could add yourself and invite as many as you can to try and make this a hard hitting event.
Many thanks to you all!
