An End To Police Aggression When Arresting Peaceful Protesters

This petition is awaiting approval by the Avaaz Community
An End To Police Aggression When Arresting Peaceful Protesters
  
  

 


Why this is important

Sussex Police arrested peaceful anti-fracking protesters in Balcombe using physical violence and restraint methods, designed to inflict pain and incapacitate people. Sussex Police claim on their website that the arrests were peaceful. There is significant photographic evidence that unnecessary force was used.
This isn't acceptable in a peaceful democracy.
This petition is a call for a formal investigation into the police behaviour and for disciplinary action to be taken against those who used violence against the people they arrested.
We need an end to Police aggression when arresting peaceful protesters. Here is some video evidence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOl9rXgtwYI
