An anti-capitalist Briton awaiting trial says Greek police planted Molotov cocktails and other weapons on him. Perhaps uniquely, there is video footage of the arrest which supports his case.

Yet another solid example of the use of video and photography.

Many folks say, they don’t want to be photographed at demos and actions etc ….

I understand the difficulty. HOWEVER how is it that they then put out appeals for photos, to help defend charges in court !!!

I’ve been attacked and injured a number of times at event. If I and others are intimidated by people on ‘my own side’, then it is obvious that the only camera present at a scene, will be those of the police. Surely, we can’t mean that?

Very much more on all this, on my main site at:
