police entered many people inside raised their hands but the
police just started smashing windows. One group then ran to the third
floor and managed to escape out of an upper window and down scaffolding (the
building is a bit of a building site under repair) - they were lucky. The others
inside were beaten everywhere but from the long stream of stretchers came out
of the building they were obviously trying to injure people as seriously as
possible - at least five were brought out unconscious.
The school opposite the Indy Media Center building was
where the worst police violence occured. Floors were covered in blood. Police
assault lasted over 45 minutes. Several people have been carried out in black
bags. The people in the street were chanting en masse "fascist" and "bastardo".
The wounded were carried out on stretchers continuously and taken to ambulances
that arrived with the police. Police sealed off street by surprise and a helicopter
remained low overhead like a military operation.
