Ah, the good old days of the anti-capitalist movement. I was covering the anti-capitalist World Bank, with a Nikon F100 and a photovest full of Fuji 800 (now those were the days). Me and fellow photojournalist Guy Smallman had just walked away from the main demo, which had dissipated for the siesta and decided it was time to reward ourselves with an for an ice cold Estrella Damm. As we were walking along we passed a couple of anti-capitalist protestors in their 20s walking in anear deserted plaza, at the same time rounding the corner, four casually strolling Spanish riot police, 3 male and 1 female officer. Then, it was almost as if their ears pricked up, like a pack of wolves, they saw their prey, the young couple. Bear in mind it was a few good blocks away from where the body of the demo had been, and they weren’t carrying any banners or otherwise misbehaving. The cops gave chase and bashed them once or twice with their batons. Unprovoked police brutality pure and simple. Luckily me and Guy didn’t get whacked as well, but we didn’t fancy hanging around too to find out if we would, despite them not at all being bothered by us photographing them carrying out an unprovoked assault. After dishing out a few strong whacks, the cops then casually walked off, probably for a siesta time coffee and cigarette. Absolutely shocking, but not unusual behaviour by Spanish Riot Police. The couple ran off, we cleared out too, and had our beer.
