Subject: AGAINST VIOLENCE! AGAINST AUTHORITY!
MAY 21 an action against police violence occur in Makati City with the participation of some autonomous individuals who drop a banner in Mantrade fly-over stating HUSTISYA PARA KAY CHRISTIAN SERRANO NA PINATAY NG PULIS “TUTULAN ANG KARAHASAN” (JUSTICE FOR CHRISTIAN SERRANO WHO WAS MURDERED BY COPS “DISSENT VIOLENCE”) and after hand-outs leaflets to all by passers.
MAY 23 2pm we went to the preliminary hearing of the accused police of murder in Makati City Justice Hall to give a support with the victims family. We can’t go inside to the justice hall because it is so full of people so we wait outside and post our banner.
This action is a support and also our way to show sympathy for the family of Christian Serrano 13 yrs.old a scavenger who was killed by cops, who falsely thought that the young boy was a thief; he is also one of a thousand victims of unstoppable police violence in this country.
We fearlessly condemned this act of unjustifiable killings of police and we will pursue this campaign against police oppression and violence until the people realized that police authorities are not the one protecting the ‘human rights’.

Two years ago, FIT cops Steve Discombe, Alan Palfrey and Ryan Cowlin stood only feet away from Ian Tomlinson when he was hit by PC Harwood, a blow which led to Tomlinson’s death. But, according to an IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission) report out today, they claim to have seen very little of the attack and didn’t even bother to include it in a written report. In fact they appear to have done everything they could to prevent the truth becoming known. (more…)

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011. Athens, Greece
This morning in Athens, an American anarchist has pressed attempted murder charges against Delta and Dias motorcycle police, as well as the relevant commanding officers, for a beating she suffered at the intersection of Patision and Stounari streets while demonstrating against the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on November 15th, 2010. Meanwhile, over 170 members of the American and European scholarly community, including Noam Chomsky, Judith Butler, and Immanuel Wallerstein, have denounced the behavior of the Delta police towards demonstrations and specifically the beating of the American demonstrator, calling the attack on her “nearly fatal”.

A policeman of the “DIAS” motorcycle police ran over a 6-year old Roma girl in the area of Menidi in NE Athens. According to eye-witnesses, the six-year old girl was run over as she was on the streets, where she was signing the carols with other children (in Greece, children sing carols on the eve of the Epiphany day, Jan 6). The eye-witnesses also claim the policeman dragged the girl along for 150 meters and did not stop to offer any help.
The policeman who killed the girl is at the nearby police station of Nea Ionia, yet his status is yet unclear. Around 100 people gathered at the spot of the assassination and attacked the riot police once the news of the girl’s death broke out.
More info as it comes.

Ferrara, Italy. On the nth beating by the cops
On February 24 2010 four immigrant kids are arrested in the centre of Ferrara [northern Italy] and taken to the carabinieri (paramilitary police) station of Via Del Campo. There the cops attack the kids furiously: it looks like the usual story of police brutality hidden behind the walls of a prison, the darkness of a neighbourhood in the night or, as in this case, the conspiracy of silence in a police station.
