Riot police use shields and batons in unprovoked attack on peaceful protesters. It took place at the Climate Camp on Bishopsgate in the City of London during the first day of the G20 protests on Wednesday 1st April 2009.
**As mentioned in the HMIC report into G20 policing! (See page 25 of 'Adapting To Protest', as hosted at http://inspectorates.homeoffice.gov.u... **
**PLEASE NOTE: I did not film or edit this film, I simply reuploaded it onto YouTube so it could reach a wider audience. If you wish to contact the filmmaker, please contact Rikki from IndyMedia http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2009/0... **
"Can you help identify the cops who witnessed the assault of Ian Tomlinson, who died after he was assaulted by police during the G20 protest in London on the 1st of April?
"If you were in London that day and took photographs, you may have snapped one or other of the 18+ officers who were in the immediate vicinity of Ian Tomlinson's assault at some other time.
"You may even recognise a regular from your pub, a neighbour, a copper off your local area.
"If you do, please dont just leave it be.
"If enough people - ordinary people, people like us - take the time and trouble to hold those responsible (through their action or their inaction) for the death of Ian Tomlinson, force them to come forward and be held accountable, then we might - just might - help prevent this happening again, only next time to your father, my mother, our friends, our loved ones. Dont leave it to the IPCC.
"FITwatch is also working hard to identify any Forward Intelligence Team types there in the events which were shortly followed by Ian Tomlinson's death at the age of 47."
