>Unfortunately Back To The Police: Front Gate Arrests

>Friday 8 August 2008: I should have been blogging more on the camp today, combining more camp-life shots with an interview with the Wembley Park Tent City Occupation Teachers, who visited Climate Camp this week, but unfortunately myself and other journalists have been pulled back, yet again to the policing story following an incident at the main gate earlier this afternoon.

Three protestors exited the camp around 2pm, began taking photographs of the various units of police intelligence gathering teams, some from the London Forward Intelligence Team (FIT Squad), then they refused to be stopped and searched. The video below documents what happened next.

  1. >I witnessed a very shocking and brutal arrest recently and encouraged other onlookers to film the event – i didn't have my mob on me – a guy nearest to me said you can get in trouble for filming the police – is this true?
