Thanks for your reply, and considered words. I didn't mean to offend you or appear confrontational. What I meant was that, in my experience, protests are a show of force and a precursor to battle. Why do you think they have police attend peaceful protests? They are there to intimidate and cause violence, not to ensure anyone's safety, unfortunately. To me, protests are not a place for the faint-hearted because they can quickly descend into violence, usually from provocation from the police. What we really need is to write a list of demands and consequences for failing to meet those demands, send them to government, and enforce the consequences if the demands are not met. Blood, sweat and tears are the only way to create swift changes to end such tyranny, as history has repeatedly shown us. eBay is a great place to purchase cheap riot gear (I got a used helmet and limb protection for £50, and riot shields are about £50), so it might be time to invest in some for when the time comes to fight fire with fire.
Start exercising for strength and cardio, and teach yourself unarmed and armed combat, along with learning about guerilla and unconventional warfare. These skills will give you the confidence that you will be able to do what is required if it comes to it. It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees, and wisdom teaches us when to fight, and when to simply laugh it off. Hope is to the elite what sunlight is to vampires.
You're dead wrong on your entire post. The police are enforcing the will of the government, which is to suppress our inalienable right to protest. They keep you in one place to stop you achieving the goal of ending tyranny. If you honestly think engaging with police will change their minds and bring them onside then you're going to be in for a shock when you realise how futile and idiotic that concept is. You should complain from the safety of your armchair rather than go posing at protests because, shock horror, protests can, and do, become violent because no significant change ever occurred from non-violent means.
