G20 Protests 1st April 09, London. I took this footage some time between 7.10pm and 7.15pm in the Royal Exchange Passage, on my way home from work (I wasn't a protester.) I had to cut it short, unfortunately, so that I could get myself out of the way of the riots.

Edit: The last half second of this video seems to have been cut off since I uploaded it. It's blurry, but in the original file, you can just make out a policeman grabbing someone by the neck or lapels and throwing them to the ground, just before I stopped videoing.
Edit no.2: Kadaveri has kindly fixed this and reuploaded the video with the last second intact. Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9126t...
Edit no.3: The video has now been posted on the Guardian website. They have slowed down the last few seconds, so you can clearly see the person being thrown the the ground by a policeman: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/video/20...
Other videos (mine included) showing police actions against protesters can be viewed on this page: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/apr...
Edit no.4 (22nd April 09): Channel 4 have done some excellent detective work and have concluded that the policeman at the very end of my video (the one who grabs the person and throws her/him to the ground) is very likely the same man who pushed over Ian Tomlinson. This policeman also appears to be involved in several other violent incidents prior to the attack on Mr Tomlinson. Their findings can be viewed on their site for the next week: http://www.channel4.com/news/
