Police Brutatlity

There's someone who's job it is to "deal with" police brutality. His name is Avi Zelba, and his e-mail is: Contact him to report all incidents, ok attacks, by policemen/women on demonstrators. It is important to be able to prove the attacks with video or stills.

You can say something like:
I am contacting you to report the following police abuse, which I document with the enclosed testimony/attached video... or whatever.

It might be a good idea to request follow-up, a report on how the police will be handling this possible incident of abuse. And then keep track and contact him every few days on a regular basis, saying that you expect the report, progress, etc.

Don't be shy; be business-like and efficient.

I was thinking the other day that those participating in protests should try to get pictures of what's going on. I don't have one, but I hear there are even cell phones that can take photos and upload them to the internet. If so, that would be a good way to get documentation of any violence used, not just during protests, but during the expulsion itself, if it happens.

People are doing that. They try to photograph police without tags and any brutality.
