UPDATE on the Copenhagen demonstration: MURDER ATTEMPT ON SIOE/SIAD DENMARK LEADER AND MEMBERS

SIOE Denmark is now providing a report on the murder attempt and the demonstration in Copenhagen. There was a need for recovery but also because the main stream media have been either completely silent or have published lies about the incidents. We have waited to see if the msm would write about the incident. This is the first article about it, and one more will follow about the demonstration.

Murder attempts on SIOE/SIAD Denmark leader and members

Sunday the 21th October was not only a severe attack on freedom of speech but an attempt to close the mouth forever on an organisation who stands up for freedom, freedom of speech and for democracy. Only small details prevented it ending in murder, like in Holland, of one of the brave advocates for freedom of expression who dare to stand in the frontline.

On Sunday the 21th October SIOE Denmark had announced a demonstration in Copenhagen. Read previous post. Before the demo Anders Gravers (SIOE and SIAD) and 2 other members were driving in a van with three seats in the front, following the security car, where an elderly woman, 74 years, (photo) and member of SIAD and another SIAD member were passengers.

Anders was driving and followed the security car down in a parking cellar to park so the cars would be in a secure place before the demo.
He drove very slowly down because apperently there was very little space in the height for the van. The driveway is very steep and is divided by concrete pillars. Because of the delay, the driver of the security car got out of his car to open the metal gate again because it was closing after 30 secs. so we could enter the cellar. He directed the van forwards close to the pillars alongside and directly in front of a big concrete pillar supporting the cellar roof.


2-5 seconds after there was a loud bang and the frontwindow was damaged. About two autonomous-looking types were in the front and two on each sides smashing the side windows shouting "Get him out get him out!" and started hitting Anders and the SIAD passenger in the other site with iron bars. The SIAD member in the middle (photo) was hit with a thrown filled soda bottle in the back of her head.


Anders succeded after a while to kick one of the 'autonomous' hard in the face as he leaned in to unlock the door. Anders managed to get out with a fire extinguisher from the van and hit another one hard on the shoulder. It was discovered later that they attemted to stab him down because there was stab-cut holes were found in his shirt, jacket and vest. Anders was wearing his security vest which saved his life.

Suddenly they disappeared and Anders got around the van and saw a SIAD member (top photo) lying on the floor while he was beaten in the head by 4-5 persons with iron bars. Apparently they also tried to stab him, but again he also wore his security vest which saved his life.

Suddenly someone screamed "RUN RUN" and they disappeared up the steep driveway. The elderly woman was lying on the floor completely still. She had been in the security car and got out immediately when the driver shouted "OUT OUT". She didn’t know what to do and started running. She was hunted down by two persons and banged down with an iron bar. She lay completely still in the hope she wouldn’t get anymore. She felt they stood a moment watching her if she would move. Then they presumably ran to the other SIAD member on the floor and joined the attack on him.

It was impossible to call the police in the cellar because of a bad mobile phone connection. But fortunately the caretaker of the building came down straight after by coincidence and alarmed the police and ambulance services.

The wounded, 2 men and 2 women, decided that the best thing Anders could do was to complete the demonstration. That would be a slap in the face for the undemocratic and fascistic forces who have tried to shut us down forever. Anders agreed, apart from bruises on his arm and body he felt alright and after talking to the police he drove away and completed the demonstration in front of the Institute of human rights.

Another article will follow about the demonstration.

Will charges be brought against the attackers by SIAD members? If that happens and there is a trial, there should be more publicity for SIOE.

Why do these clowns seem to have tacit protection from the police, or is it just cowardice and a fear of getting hurt.
