The Weekly Round-up: Monday 26th July
The big news of the past week has been the announcement by the CPS that no charges will be brought against the officer who struck and pushed to the ground the innocent passer-by, Ian Tomlinson, by a police officer during last year’s London G20 summit demonstrations.
Schnews does a good job at that, as does Kevin Blowe while Antony Painter offers slightly more tongue in cheek coverage.
Right now it’s important to keep on campaigning for justice for Ian and his family and continuing to call the police to account for unlawful actions. You can follow the Ian Tomlinson Family Campaign over at the website and donate to the campaign fund by sending cheques to:
Ian Tomlinson Family Campaign

Apparently PayPal donations will be up and running this week.
In other climate justice news, the French iteration of Camp for Climate Action, Camp Climat, started last Thursday, 22nd July.
Hopefully we’ll be able to pass on more updates soon but in the meantime here’s a photo gallery of set-up:
We return to the G20 for the second time in one post with the news that last Friday, 23rd July, the European Climate Exchange (as targeted by the Camp for Climate Action during the G20 summit) and the leading marketplace for trading carbon in Europe, had its website targeted by hacktivists from the autonomous tech collective *decocidio* (#ϴ).
In a public act of digital direct action, the ECX website was taken offline and… replaced with this website highlighting the stupidity of carbon trading and demonstrating it to be a false solution.
More power to the Hack Bloc!
