G20 Protest Videos: Growing Catalogue of evidence against police

How are the police being trained and why are they being trained to treat the public as an enemy?

Watch a collection of videos passed to the Guardian that appear to show police using excessive force against G20 protesters

In the fortnight since the G20 protests in London, the Guardian has received video footage from a number of people that appears to show police using excessive force or questionable tactics in dealing with demonstrators and the press.

The best-known video was sent by a New York fund manager early last week. It shows Ian Tomlinson, who was attempting to return home on the evening of the first day’s protests, on 1 April, being pushed to the ground by a police officer.

Here is a list of the footage received over this period, displayed in chronological order according to when the events took place. The Guardian is passing newly obtained footage to the Independent Police Complaints Commission, with the permission of those who shot the films.
