Kicking out the jams in Geneva

Protesters rampage in Geneva

“Police have used rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons against anti-globalisation protesters in Swiss and French cities near Evian where the Group of Eight (G8) summit is being held.

In the Swiss city of Geneva authorities spent more than nine hours battling with demonstrators as they rampaged through the city centre. Shop windows were smashed and stores looted, leaving the city streets awash with broken glass and choking fumes from tear gas canisters.”

UK Indymedia has on the ground coverage

A protestor was badly hurt when police cut a rope suspending him from a bridge. He fell 20 feet into a river.

And, of course, “Arundhati Roy is new icon for anti-G8 protestors”.
