    True, but do you paint everyone with the same brush because of a portion?

    It doesn't show that at all. It shows them on a small portion of an entry-exit as they move towards the bridge. They were told to stay on the walkways once on the bridge, which are fairly wide. Instead they blocked all three lanes on that side of the bridge while on the bridge. No police leading them. In fact, the police came up the bridge from the other direction so as to arrest them. That is what the video shows.

    That is not what appears to be the case on the video below:

    BS. They are not on the bridge yet. When the camera angle widens, you can still see another "On ramp" with cars coming up even further to the left. The marchers have to cross that active roadway as well, to then get to the bridge, and its wide walkways. What is evident is that the police escorted the group as it had to cross active roadways. That makes sense. But once up on the bridge, they were to stay in the walkways, and not obstruct traffic on their own, which they clearly did in the longer video, blocking all lanes.

    So is the choice now between what you say, or what my "lying" eyes can see ?

    What a dumbass thing to argue about.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    It should be. But the claim made earlier in thread, and on TV, was that the 700 arrests that ensued were all part of a police set-up, and that the marchers were really just all minding their own business, blocking all traffic up on the span of the bridge.

    This entire "movement" is all engineered politics. It will matter as this goes forward.

    I disagree, we are on a forum to debate politics to find where we stand on things. It is important to certain people; therefore, we should respect their views/opinions. If we disagree, then we should blast them to hell!
