AJLPP EXPRESSES SOLIDARITY WITH EUROPEAN PROTESTS VS G20 SUMMIT (tags)
The Alliance-Philippines (AJLPP) based in the United States expresses militant solidarity with the working people of all nationalities in Europe who will conduct peaceful protest against the G20 Summit. The summit runs Friday and Saturday in London, the French city of Strasbourg and the German cities of Kehl and Baden Baden, following a similarly tightly monitored summit of the G-20 leaders on the world economic crisis in London on Thursday. The AJLPP criticized the fascist and reactionary tendencies of European governments to crackdown on the peaceful protest against capitalist exploitation and oppression. Already, police boats were patrolling the river that divides Strasbourg and Kehl. Military helicopters were mobilized, and hospitals kilometers (miles) away were stocking up on supplies in case protests turn violent.
