    When a protest is occuring in UK, All concerned roads are shut down for a certain period. This was a legal protest and the police cannot remove people for no reason.
    Where did this occur? Is it possible that they did this to prevent further damage of property and violence? A few bad eggs ruin it for all...

    Terrorists for protesting? Jesus christ
    "direct action" != protesting... Dressing in police uniforms, bringing weapons, and trying to stir chaos != protesting.

    Inside the global protest? Where are they on the video?
    I saw no one attacking the police, damaging windows. Most were sitting down were they not? So what did they do to warrant that? You tell me.

    That was in Bank of England not the climate change protest. Two completley different protests.

    Don't forget that 4 different protests occured in London yesterday

    bishopsgate - Climate
    Trafalgar - Stop the war
    Bank of England - A mixture of trade unions, anarchists, anti capitalists and normal people

    I'm not sure the action against the encampment was warranted... I doubt the anti-terror laws were applied to those people.

    They weren't, most people were sitting down - drinking, listening to music and smoking and then all of a sudden. The riot police started surrounding them. They were not needed in bishopsgates, they were needed near Bank of England where people WERE damaging property and attacking police.

    It was, under the anti terror laws, they can use force and arrest people.
    Police used the laws on the run up to the G20 as well

    There were surreal moments: Earlier in the morning, police impounded an armored personnel carrier complete with what looked like a machine-gun turret near London's Liverpool Street Station as slack-jawed office workers took pictures with their cell phones.

    Cause trouble and they were stopped and arrested.
    I have no problem with that, what i do have the main problem is when the police attacked unprovoked in a crowd of peaceful protestors.

    Do you think what they did at the camp was right?

    It depends... I'd need to hear an explanation from the police to get their side of the story.
