More G8 Panic : Police confiscate children’s bicycles
June 01, 2007
The German police’s security measures are becoming more and more bizarre.
Yesterday, as activists and citizens began to flood the Rostock region in Germany to protest the upcoming G8 summit, police repression has become humorous, but still more restrictive.
On Wednesday the police prevented the building of a legitimate protest camp in Wichmannsdorf because of the “well-founded suspicion that stolen bicycles from around the country are being brought to Heiligendamm.” Yesterday outside of Rostock police used mobile checkpoints to search traffic for stolen bicycles, comparing the bicycle’s license numbers with their databases.
