The publication of the police reports on the worldwide June 18
anti-capitalism demonstrations is merely a public relations excercise. As
inequality and ecological devestation increase resistance will grow;

'violence' on the day was not organised, but a spontaneous eruption of
disatisfaction and anger at the ravages of capital - the demands of profit
come before the needs of life.
