Justice group Animal Rebellion blocked Westminster Bridge in a demonstration against the government’s involvement in animal farming on Tuesday. Traffic was brought to a standstill for about an hour.
Five protesters were arrested for obstruction of the highway while a sixth person was arrested for allegedly assaulting a protester during the demonstration, the Metropolitan Police said.
As with being willing to break the law to make protest. It’s having to face the penalty of the law you’ve broken which adds the force to your protest. You’re willing to sacrifice for your cause.
So too facing the Great General Public with your tactics. It’s that you’re willing to put up with the reaction which gives force to the intensity of your beliefs.
That very willingness to take a slap is what underlines the protest?
