We're watching you - CCTV attached to crane watching demonstration

People were given a really impassioned response from people inside the detention centre, with detainees waving and banging on the bars in their windows.
The police - fairly violently (see the injury) - pushed people out of the public footpath that runs to the side of the detention centre. They then 'held' people under Section 14 of the Public Order act for about an hour in a police "bubble".
Slowly they start moving people - individually - from one "bubble" to another. To get from one to another you had to walk through twenty cops one of whom was demanding a name and address under Section 50 of the Police Reform Act. Having now received legal advice its clear that this didn't really give them the right to take our name and addresses, though the one person who refused was arrested to ensure they did get his details. The reason given for taking our details was because there was a 'possibility' that we were involved in an 'anti-social' act that could have caused 'alarm and distress for the detainees and those in the nearby industrial estate'.
People being taken out one by one was a really succesful tactic at keeping us as a group confused and atomised, and I think something we should really ensure the cops can't pull on us again!
