From the people who brought you the Bologna bombing

Nick Davies in today's Guardian writes a harrowing account of the actions of the police during the 2001 G8 Conference, all the more shocking because this is not China or Burma, but Genoa , Italy.

He asks the question whether the victims will ever get justice. The answer being not if the Italian political establishment has anything to do with it. The word fascism is over-used, by myself as much as anyone, so it's worth reminding oneself what it stands for - brutality and evil - as Orwell wrote: 'A boot stamping on a human face forever'.

They must not win.
