Protestor violence < Police violence

Listen to the interview at 25m here and read the comments made by observers of the march throughout the day here. From all I have seen online and in person, the police have consistently used disproportionate violence, provocative tactics and attempted to frighten protestors into giving up in future while blaming the bogeyman of a ‘violent minority’. At the same time, politicians have the cheek to say that peaceful protest is welcome while ignoring democratic precepts and voting through legislation that was not in any manifesto. They are mocking and ignoring the supposed rights of citizens. Citizens, in return, should mock and ignore the authority of this political system which has been exposed as fundamentally illegitimate.
