British police use unprovoked violence and restraint as punishment for observers who ask them to identify themselves at protests

In this shocking video from the Climate Camp protests at Kingsnorth Climate Camp, two people who ask cops who've illegally removed their badges to identify themselves are tackled, deliberately injured, and arrested. As is clear from the video, the police singled out anyone who photographed or monitored police activity at the protest, and used extreme, unprovoked force to prevent themselves from being identified as they committed crimes against the peaceful protestors.
