Video: Man dead at G20 protest was assaulted by UK police

The man you will see on the video is Ian Tomlinson, 47, he was found unconscious near to St Michael’s Alley off of Cornhill near the Bank of England and later pronounced dead.

He had been returning to his home near by from working at a newsagents and was not part of the demonstrations taking part against the G20 meeting in London.

While laws are being passed in the UK to give more and more powers to the police to protect us from terrorism and child porn, what laws are being passed to protect us from politicians, police and corporations from abusing their powers?

Update: A second post-mortem examination on behalf of Mr Tomlinson’s family has now revealed that Ian Tomlinson died from internal bleeding.
