States create the violence used to justify there existance.

It seems that that old Anarchist saying still holds true.

Quote from David Howarth MP (LD) who attended Climate Camp in the City:

"How did the police end up in a situation where they used the same degree of force on the most peaceful demonstration as they did for a violent protest at the Bank of England? They seem to only have one trick."

The Guardian has this quote in a story called "Baton charges and kettling: police's G20 crowd control tactics under fire". It's somewhat ironic that the Guardian is reporting on this now, when it had absolutely no issue with talking up planned protests as some sort of mass riot in the run-up to the g20. I think they should take a close look at there role in allowing this to happen. it's easy to police asif there is a riot if all the public are expecting one!

Nasty policing in action after people have already been kettled (illigally?) for hours.
