Day of action against state violence

Friday 30th July
Day of action against state violence
From London to Oakland, UK to Greece


Call of Solidarity from the UK

Ian Tomlinson died on April 1st 2009 after being attacked by a policeman
during the G20 protests in London.

He was walking home from work and had nothing to do with the demonstrations.

A few short moments later he collapsed and died of his injuries.

The police immediately attempted a cover-up which fell apart after footage
of the death leaked to the media a week later, as well as thousands of
other images of police violence against the British public.


Since then, the police, the so-called Independent Police Complaints
Commission (IPCC) & the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP), and other
state agencies have been allegedly investigating the death.

Their conclusion? The killer will not be charged with any offence.

A limited period of time is set by the British legal system of six months
to bring charges to court. The only course of action to take after this
period without the backing of the British legal system is to bring a
private legal case which would cost the Tomlinson family millions.

They are an ordinary working family and have no access to the finances

The lesson? The police internationally are there to enforce the law, not
to abide by it. They are happy to kill and cover-up their crimes.

The British state believes this and all other cases of police killings
such as the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes will be forgotten and
ignored because the victims are poor.

We demand justice!

Everyone to the streets! Never forget, Never forgive!
