Witness Group

During the demonstrations against the policies of the G-8, we will be present as witnesses. We are from religious groups, trade unions, civil society and the community. Our concern is to protect the right to protest and dissent.
We will be there to bear witness and to protect human rights. We seek to protect demonstrators by witnessing and reporting on actions of the police and monitoring their adherence to the standards of human rights in a democratic society. There will be many others who will be watching the demonstrators. We hope to even the odds. 
Team members in purple T-shirts will record the times, actions and sequence of events and provide an accurate summary account to corporate, alternative and independent media.
