police brutality, anarchism, europe, feminism

In response to this comment thread, I found this video, which appears to be created by an anarchist in germany and details instances of European police brutality and resistance to that brutality. (I could be wrong in guessing this, I don’t know much at *all* about anarchists/anarchist movement in Germany, and the video blurb doesn’t give much clarification, so somebody correct me, please, if i’m wrong!!!!)

(P.S. Video has LOTS of disturbing images and has been flagged by the youtube community, so watch at your own risk)

(and just on a side note, the thing I noticed watching the video was that there were *no* women throughout the video. it made me think about how nation/state violence plays out against women at protests and how men on the left are quite capable of using a righteous cause to violate and brutalize women. are women not to be a part of liberation? does community liberation come at the cost of the health and freedom of the women of the community? And how are the protest images above different from this one? resist2.jpg

or from this? >
