European Demos last Week

Demonstrations on the anniversary of Genoa.

On August 20 concerned anti-corporate activists around the world held marches, vigils and other demonstrations to mark the first month anniversary of the death of activist Carlo Giuliani during July's G8 protests in Genoa. Protests occurred around the globe, especially in Europe, where there were 30 protests taking place in Germany alone. Activists wish to keep focus on those still in jail in Genoa, as well as on human rights violations by the Italian police. Though members of the PublixThatre Cavavan have been released, with charges still pending, according to Plans are being made for a march in Genoa on October 20 to mark the three month anniversary of protests against the G8 Summit.
