Over 700 G8 protestors and innocent bystanders were detained or arrested last week in Scotland. A large number of them have been released with no charges after being held for days, often in isolation cells. Six prisoners on hunger strike released this week reveal that police deprived them of sleep for 73 hours, and at least one released prisoner was stripped of clothing as punishment for receiving a letter of support.
A support group has called for a press conference,
in front of the Sheriffâ€™s Court, in Chamber Street, Edinburgh, at 2pm, on Wednesday, 13 July 2005
