Journalist Tells of Sexual Harrassment by Police at G20 Summit

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.
