As the Olympic opening ceremony celebrates collective action, right to protest compromised on the streets of London

As the Olympic opening ceremony celebrates collective action, right to protest compromised on the streets of London | Policing news | Scoop.it

We’ll be honest: we hadn’t expected an awful lot. The run-up promised little more than an advert to help sanitise the image of some of the Olympics’ grand sponsors. We saw bread and circuses for an austerity-wrought city that feels like it doesn’t have a great deal to celebrate, a city which the global corporations and financial instituitions have done their best to tear the heart out of.
