I wish I was there

Baxter protests forced action: Police - National -

I have seen much coverage on the protest that I was meant to be at. This included footage of my own Socialist group chanting. The protests were inspiring with their arms linked and not intimidated by the foul police, they chanted: "the whole world is watching." I really wish I had gone. The police were, however, disgusting. They've been using excessive force and bullying tactics. They are just puppets of a system that is trying to hinder a person's democratic right to protest.

a woman, was grabbed by a policeman by the hair, pulled to the ground and had her face forcibly pushed into the red dirt and scrub.

Doesn't that make you sick?
