Declaration for the Press: "Instant Release of all Individuals that are under Arrest since the Demonstrations against the G8-Meeting in Genoa"

To: Media editors, domestic and foreign


Over 170 individuals, initiatives and groups from Europe, the USA and Mexico demand the instant release of all individuals who were arrestesd during the demonstrations against the G8-meeting in Genoa.

The supporters are as diverse as the so-called "Anti globalization movement". There are unionists, Social Democrates, members of the Green Party, Democratic Socialists, environmentalist, and left initiatives, human rights organizations, women's groups, antifascist and ,autonome' groups, that support the following demands:

- instant release or the arrested individuals

- annihilation of all personal data, including finger prints and pictures that were taken

during the arrests,

- an investigation of the police violence by an independent and international commission.

A spokes person of the Group for Solidarity Genoa 2001:

"Hundrets of proclamations and letters of protest were published since the demonstrations in Genoa, that like us demand the instant release of all individuals under arrest. We are a part of this international movement of solidarity for the victims of police violence during the G8-meeting in Italy. The support of the arrested individuals is an important answer to occurring oppression. We also want to express our respect for the investigational committee in Milano/Genoa."

Group for Solidarity Genoa 2001, Berlin, August 7, 2001-08-09

Instant release of all individuals that were arrested during the demonstrations against the G-8 meeting in Genua!

"The gate opened constantly, the people got out of the trucks and were beaten up. They had to stand against the wall. Inside, they smashed their heads against the wall. They pied on some of them. A young woman threw up blood while the chef of the GOM (special unit of the department for domestic affairs) watched. They threatened the woman with raping her with their clubs."

Italian police officer in an interview with "La Republica"

The violent actions of the police during the G-8 meeting in Genua show that the large protest movements against the politics of the leading industrial nations are in this case being stopped and hindered by violence on the street and torture of arrested individuals if necessary.

We demand the instant release of the continuously arrested individuals. We demand the annihilation of the personal information, fingerprints, and pictures of all illegally arrested individuals. We furthermore demand a public investigation of the police violence through an independent, international committee.

There are still 49 people under detention in several prisons in Genoa.

The arrested and abused from Genoa need our solidarity. We ask all democratic organizations, initiatives and individuals, to express their solidarity with the victims of police brutality and to work towards a fast release of the continuously arrested people.

The support of the arrested costs money. We need your donations especially for lawyers and personal support in Genua. This is the account:
