(en) On the wayto G8 - Police stop and search Irish Dissent bus - anarchist magazine stolen by Andrew - Anarkismo.net

Date Sat, 02 Jul 2005 19:53:55 +0300

Irish G8 buses stopped for one hour coming off ferry - The first buses
taking activists in Ireland to the G8 protests came off the ferries into
Scotland tonight. They found the police waiting for them. Audio reports
and pic from one hour ago.
Mobile phone pic of waiting to be searched
Everyone is being taken off the bus individually to identify their gear,
then taken into a cabin where everyone waits until bus is searched. It
seem they are just doin a scant search, the standard fare for state
intimidation. But they are filming everyone individually as they get
off the bus - real close up and in their face. we also had to fill out
a landing card issued under 2000 terrorism act [2001? ed]. They took
'days of dissent' magazine off one individual. The cops have no id. One
is wearing just a small yellow bib, a very tidy suit under it. Does not
look like a joe soapcop. They also just took a sample of 'red and black
revolution' from someone.

Interview with person as bus is Dissent searched
Describes search procedure etc, interview was finished at around 19.15
about to contact them again

Magazine stolen
This segment is recorded a little bit later (ending at around 21.50
GMT just after the person in the first interview has been searched.
In this segment he describes how the police confiscated a copy of the
Irish anarchist magazine 'Red and Black Revolution' which you can read
