PSNI attack Peaceful G8 protest in Belfast

Peaceful protest attacked in Belfast. Martial Law Exposed!

protest477724jpg.jpg

Republican Network for Unity today voiced its opposition to the arrival of the G8 leaders by attempting to conduct a white line protest walk from West Belfast, past the City Hall and onto the Waterfront Hall where US War Criminal Barrack Obama was addressing crowds.

Despite conducting a similar protest without incident last Thursday, today RNU were forced off the Road by dozens of British PSNI officers, many with English accents.

Once on the footpath and just behind the City Hall, all of our activists were literally pinned into a corner by the PSNI, and prevented from going any further.

The peaceful protesters were shoved violently into a corner by PSNI and other assorted British intelligence agents. About 25 of us underwent individual street interrogations at the hands of officers with English accents who questioned us, pictured us then warned us to go nowhere near the Waterfront.

One female comrade was punched in the face when she refused to remove a scarf to allow an English Police officer Video her interrogation; others had their scarf’s physically pulled off by officers.

Later a student comrade was arrested and dragged off in a prison van with no explanation given.

Claims by the G8 to represent the interests of the ‘free world’ have been exposed as lies, as in Belfast City Centre, as basic peaceful protest was outlawed to facilitate the arrival of War Criminals in Ireland.

This footage (taken not far from where Obama was speaking) shows the PSNI chasing and pouncing the protesters, preventing them from reaching the Waterfront Hall until the US Warlord had left.

Instead it was shown on Russian Television.

"His (George Monbiot's) activities led to his being made persona non grata in seven countries and being sentenced to life imprisonment in absentia in Indonesia."

"George Joshua Richard Monbiot (born 27 January 1963) is an English writer, known for his environmental and political activism. He lives in Machynlleth, Wales, writes a weekly column for The Guardian, and is the author of a number of books, including Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain (2000) and Bring on the Apocalypse: Six Arguments for Global Justice (2008). He is the founder of The Land is Ours, a peaceful campaign for the right of access to the countryside and its resources in the United Kingdom. In January 2010, Monbiot founded the ArrestBlair.org website which offers a reward to people attempting a peaceful citizen’s arrest of former British prime minister Tony Blair for alleged crimes against peace."
