Tear Gas, the Smell of Frightened Capitalists

Tear Gas, the Smell of Frightened Capitalists

Latest reports from Evian are that in Geneva, after some hours of quietness, things have kicked off again. The G8 delegates were disrupted and the summit was delayed for a couple of hours as a resoult. Local swiss people were attacked by German riot police. In fact many locals took to the streets against german riot police who appeared out of control in their city.

Two british men are currently in hospital. One of them, Guy Smallman, an IndyMedia volunteer, needed a two hour long operation. There is a petition to send a letter to Swiss embassies in various countries. Both wounded are now stable.
