Democracies or police states? Anyone noticed?

Guardian Unlimited | Guardian daily comment | In the line of fire: Kate Ainger –The manufacture of evidence linking all protesters to violent factions has become a regular feature of anti-capitalist demonstrations. In 2000 in Washington DC, police shut down the activists’ convergence centre because they discovered equipment to make “pepper spray” (a bag of dried chillies in the kitchen) and “petrol bombs” (paint thinner and rags in the area where banners were being painted). In Barcelona in 2001, police were reprimanded after they were discovered dressed as activists and breaking the windows of a Burger King.
