these appeals to the police to just play nice are just.... so fucking naive
I don't even know what camps are left. Westminster Abbey seemed ok, but that was 4 hours ago, 2 hours ago saint james park seemed about to fall so I moved, home office camp was due to march out at lunch time to idk where but I haven't seen them? maybe they haven't left yet? Trafalgar camp is damaged but stands for the mean time
all I can hopw is these raids amount to some radicalisation. libs used to applause the cops, then they'd just chat to the blue vests, now they're getting mad. they can see the voilence the state intends to employ to stamp XR out, and that everybody who reasons with the police gets nowhere. people haven't given up, I can only hope this leads to a harder fight in the coming days. the rebellion isn't due to end, *eye roll* I know..., until the 19th and I think they intend to be here in some capacity every day
@CornishRepublicanArmy "i believe in free speech... but not that kind"
@CornishRepublicanArmy not to be overly sarcastic but maybe theres your chance to start some trouble
@dragon shit is WAY too liberal for that. they'll single me out and arrest me in an instant. they forced a guy to the fucking ground for trying to get his tent
@CornishRepublicanArmy JESUS FUCK
@CornishRepublicanArmy give them my love
@goat I spoke to them earlier! might go over in a moment and see what's up
@CornishRepublicanArmy if the protest/occupation is as liberal as you say then arguing with a cop is good praxis. Every time someone argues with a cop it ties up that cop and two or three others so they can't take tents or pay attention to the crowd at large
@SanfordianPhil there's hundreds of them. they had 10 officers carry a man who fought back away while the rest kept destroying tents
