Scoop Images: Genoa Day 3 – Battle On The Beach

More Indymedia images from Genoa. For live coverage see http://italia.indymedia.org/.


On the march today there were many who expressed outrage and anger at the killing and shooting on J20.


Pink bloc marchers were sad and distressed at killing of activists - it must stop.


This is what Piazza Kennedy looks like at 3 pm, J21. While the demonstration is slowly moving up Torino, several thousand people have confronted the police at Piazza Kennedy in response to the tear gas attacks by police which happened before.


Tear gas gets lobed into the convergence center, at least 30 lots of tear gas has been thrown just in front of the march, where clashes are happening. The march prepares to go on wearing protection from more tear gas. Some conflict is still occurring and this has been going on for at least an hour and a half now.


After police had attacked the peaceful demonstration around Piazza Kennedy with massive amounts of tear gas, they chased people along the sea front. At the same time, as many as 25 police and Coast Guard boats appeared offshore. Whether they expected those fleeing from the rioting police to escape swimming is unknown.
