Trade union - 2001 and undercover police

This is 3-4 video reports in one. I made them for FSTV a US satellite station and show the wide spectrum of demonstrating post Genoa. I think the is still one report missing will post it when I find it.

My thinking then as now is to show the tredtional events, walking from A-B in a radical way, but to concentrate more on the fring more alternative party and protest movement.

Brussels 2001 - December 13th, saw possibly the largest ever demonstration of trade union strength across Europe. Well over 100,000 people marched through the capital of the 'Europe of Profit' under the slogan, "Europe: it's us!" 

This film covers the wider demonstrations on that day.

I talk about my role in the film, Diaz; Don't Clean Up This Blood which is the a portrayal of the horrific assault by police on activists attending the Genoa G8 summit in 2001.

DIAZ - Don't clean up this blood - Trailer

This film has some of my video from 2001 in it a cameo of a actor playing me, am interested to see what the film makers have made of this powerful event.
