This is a collection of stories about the G20 actions on the 1st and 2nd of April created by Panda members.  Giving them a proper read if you can, as they need to be read.

THE DAY AS IT HAPPENED

Text updates and calls were sent from loads of you guys across the city, and can be found at http://twitter.com/panda_power . They make a compelling and at times chilling read. Combined with other reportings they were written up as these articles:

Sad to say that the demos were largely overshadowed in the media by reports of appalling policing and the subsequent death of Ian Tomlinson. But the real story of the day was mass resistance to the onward march of the catastrophic failure of capitalism. Let’s not forget that. And congrats to everyone for being a part of it.
