    Why do they all wear masks? What have they got to hide? Or do they bloody well KNOW they're in the wrong?

    The exact opposite, they’re doing the right thing but they’ll be punished for it.
    Quite New Testament really.
    Everyman carries within himself a world made up of all that he has seen and loved; and it is to this world that he returns incessantly, though he may pass through, and seem to inhabit, a world quite foreign to it.

    The police always end up being abused by both sides and used as political enforcers by the government of the day. They say they are 'keeping the peace' of course. But they are set up as much as agent provocateurs set up the protesters and their cause. Some police services handle it better than other police forces. Proper training and a less 'military' response might help.

    Maybe maybe maybe God Damn it you are flirting with fascist reaction. Knock it the F off.

    1. The street Antifa of now are pitiful, grotesque caricatures of the Antifa of then. Why should the new way work better?
    2. Why did the old way fail?
    3. Why will the same reaction not be the result?

    Unless you can answer these questions comprehensively as to facts and principles, violence accomplishes nothing except to make you an enemy of all society.

    Exactamente.
