• Police assault on demonstrator by Peter Marshall
City of London police were overwhelmed by demonstrators in the ‘March on the City’ against bailing out the bankers on Oct 10 2008 and turned to strong-arm methods. This officer seemed to be applying pressure to a sensitive point on a demonstrator’s neck, causing considerable pain but having no restraining effect on the progress of the marchers pushing from behind.
