                                Sunday afternoon at 15.00 hrs some 250 to
300 people gathered at the Spui
                                square in the centre of Amsterdam. Reason 
was their repudiation against
                                and anger for the police violence that had 
been deployed in Genova the last
                                couple of days and the cold blooded 
assassination of Carlo. Also was the
                                demo against G8, the EC, and all other 
forms of corporate business and
                                repression and for a world without 
domination of whatever kind. 

                      Sunday afternoon at 15.00 hrs some 250 to 300 people 
gathered at the Spui square in the centre of
                      Amsterdam. Reason was their repudiation against and 
anger for the police violence that had been
                      deployed in Genova the last couple of days and the 
cold blooded assassination of Carlo. Also was
                      the demo against G8, the EC, and all other forms of 
corporate business and repression and for a
                      world without domination of whatever kind. Among 
them where some of the Dutch demonstrators
                      who had just returned by bus from Genova. The 
manifestation had been called for on saturday
                      afternoon via different activist mailing lists. For 
Dutch circumstances this was a good turnout for a
                      demo so shortly before announced. Although the demo 
call came from the
                      autonomous/anarchist/squatscene there turned up 
quite a few Trotskyists from the International
                      Socialists (affiliated with the English SWP - 
Socialist Workers Party) who tried to attract all media
                      attention, as they had been doing the last couple of 
days. Their fixation on media coverage is
                      noteworthy. They organized two busses to Genova in 
which also a couple of main press journalists
                      were allowed to travel. It could be prevented that 
they took the lead of the demo. Chanting "All cops
                      are bastards, ACAB", No Justice no peace, fuck the 
police", "G8 killers", "Berlusconi and Co.
                      assassins", "EU fuck off", etc, the demo went 
through the center of Amsterdam to finally reach the
                      Italian Consulate. Some speaches were made, flowers 
and a cross planted in the front garden, and
                      one minute of silence. During the demo the Amsterdam 
cops kept low profile except for the `normal'
                      companionship of plain cloth officers and a couple 
of ordinary cops.
