It does annoy me that people who are voicing their dissatisfaction with the ever-widening gap between rich and poor are labelled ‘anti-capitalist’. They want a fairer society. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re anti-capitalist.
Further to yesterday’s pepperspray post, came across this collection of incidents of police brutality against Occupy protesters in the US caught on camera. I agree with the sentiments expressed in the opening paragraphs. It is the actions of a few thugs intent on violence that can turn a peaceful protest into something very ugly.
