The Truth about Water Cannons

13 Dec

The Home Secretary,Theresa May, is considering the use of water cannons to deal with protesters. But the evidence from Germany is that far from being a non lethal weapon they can cause terrible injuries as this photo shows.

The protester in this picture, 66-year-old Dietrich Wagner, could remain blind for life after being hit in the face with a water cannon at a protest in Stuttgart a few weeks ago.

It is vitally important that we spread information on the dangers of water cannon use as quickly as possible. Please link to this post wherever you can, retweet it, link to it on facebook, etc. This way we can build a campaign against this tactic.
