what i witnessed yesterday (Friday) was nothing short of police provocation. a civil and “democratic” society does not meet peaceful protests with over the top police presence and intimidation. the police proved yesterday that they are the biggest gang in town. i fear that today they will be met with more resistance as police insecurity pushes people to anger which will result in more police overreaction. if there is violence today it will be the result of the police and the draconian law passed to prevent freedom of speech and assembly.
