some guy is confronting a cop and I think he's about to be arrested. cops aren't you're friends, you can't reason with them, they're the mindless foot soldiers of the state, they're drilled to have no brain and no concience
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 give them my love
@goat I spoke to them earlier! might go over in a moment and see what's up
@CornishRepublicanArmy tell him to go shag a bible
@CornishRepublicanArmy IIRC at the last rebellion week they picked up all the tents in a bin lorry

@CornishRepublicanArmy Every protest is someone's first. I remember being taken to the WTO protests as a very little kid and that was an early experience coding "cops bad, civilians good" in my head (family got me out before things got heated but still it was formative), but for many people who are heading out, they're still in a liberal mindset. They have an idea in them that protest is about hearts & minds. Experience is the only real teacher that can show protest is about pressure & power.
@CornishRepublicanArmy maybe the true goal of xr is to show the libs what cops are really like and gradually turn 20% of the population into anarchists. This time next year maybe we’ll literally be taking parliament...
@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
