[Nettime-nl] Fw: THE GENOA PROTESTS


Hallo Nettime,
Over de nieuwe (liberale?!) repressie in het kader van WTO/EU/Gzoveel/WB:

 
THE GENOA PROTESTS

Democracy at the barricades

by SUSAN GEORGE

     Heads of state were besieged in July in Genoa. They
     talked trade and money inside a guarded, if luxurious,
     compound, while outside the Italian carabinieri
     confronted demonstrators, only a few of whom were
     violent. Results: news footage of handshakes and
     governmental agreements, their details already forgotten
     - and of an unwarranted death, 600 injuries, beatings and
     frustration. The next talks will be in the safe enclave
     of Qatar.
