Evolving consciousness.

December 7, 2009

In the run up to the G20 summit in London earlier this year the planned protests were largely presented in the media as being a gathering of anti-capitalist groups.

The event became noteworthy for the manner of policing and for the death of a passer by, Ian Tomlinson. Matters were cemented to my memory along the lines that the unfortunate death of Ian Tomlinson on the fringe of an anti-capitalist demonstration during heavy handed policing.

After the National Audit Office reported on the cost of the bailouts last week my mind has become open to the possibility that Ian Tomlinson died on the fringe of pro-democracy demonstrations.
