Freedom To Express Oneself

I found it amusing that they would HAVE to pick an auspicious occasion to express themselves:

The six were arrested in the past week in connection with alleged public order offences they are said to have committed at the TUC march last month.

But officers moved to arrest them this week as they feared the group were planning further disruption at the royal wedding on Friday. The six have been issued with bail conditions stopping them from entering central London on the day of the wedding.

It brings the total number of anarchists banned from London on the day of the wedding to 68. And Scotland Yard sources confirmed that further arrests are planned in the coming days as they move to minimise the potential of trouble for Prince William and Kate Middleton on the big day.

Meanwhile officers announced that a proposed protest during the wedding by extremist group Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) has been rejected.

But a new request, by a group thought to want to protests about issues in the Middle East, have now lodged a request to protest on the day.

MAC had asked to protest outside Westminster Abbey on the day of the wedding.

After meetings with the group, Scotland Yard agreed they could protest there, but not until hours after the wedding had finished. The group refused and did not turn up to a meeting on Thursday to negotiate with officers.

Now I'm thinking about the rare moments when Malaysians have taken to the streets in the past.

I'm remembering how those protests took place on otherwise uneventful days.

And then I'm reminiscing over how they were brutally treated by the Malaysian government.

It is a world of difference.
