The organisers of last week’s G20 demonstration in the City of London have called another march for this weekend to protest against the “killing” of Ian Tomlinson, the newspaper vendor who died after getting caught up in the demo.

Video emerged today which showed that the 47-year-old was hit and pushed to the ground by a baton-wielding police officer shortly before he collapsed and died of a heart attack. That footage, and the testimony of various witnesses at the protest, has called the official police version of events into question.

Mr Tomlinson was not involved in the protest, but was walking home after spending the day helping an Evening Standard vendor near Monument Station. His normal route home would take him past the Bank of England, where hundreds of protesters were corralled behind police barricades, and he was diverted to nearby Cornhill.

It was in a nearby alleyway, according to video footage obtained by The Guardian, that he was pushed over by a police officer in riot gear and apparently hit over the leg with a baton. He collapsed a few minutes later.
