I was in the kids block, comprising of a few hundred adults, including a number of people in wheelchairs and children of various ages. The police penned us in from the start to the finish, always controlling our direction and to a certain extent pace.
Later on I was walking back to the camp and was on a small country road when a police car came up behind me, I did not move out of the road and he drove alongside me on the verge and asked if I wanted to be arrested? And I replied for what and he said for obstructing the public highway- I was outraged because this was exactly what they had been doing to us for 6 hours!
And yet when we asked policemen why they were obstructing us they replied because they can!
