Reporter Amy Miller of the Alternative Media Centre relays the experience of her arrest and detention while covering the protests of the G20 Summit:
I was told I was going to be raped. I was told that I was going to be gang banged. I was told that they were going to make sure that I was never going to want to act as a journalist again by making sure that I would be repeatedly raped while I was in jail. While I was in the detention center, I saw numerous young women who were completely strip searched, who were strip-searched by male officers. And one young woman who was coming out, who was completely traumatized, said she had had a finger put up her.
Hat tip Jezebel.
