Democracy, originally uploaded by alister.

Police in Aberdeen have been filming anti-G8 protestors saying they have been "gathering evidence", for crimes yet to come presumably. Meanwhile a protest was staged yesterday at the Scottish Parliament demanding the right to march at the summit venue of Gleneagles. It coincided with a debate on the issue in the Scottish Parliament where once again a vague commitment to the right to demonstrate was made, but nothing too specific. In other words the police and George Bush's marine corps bodyguards can do whatever they like. The attempts to intimidate activists and sideline protest anywhere near Gleneagles is an appalling attack on the democratic right to demonstrate.
