Port of shame update - 4 arrested for no good reason

Further to previous post, 4 people were arrested at the 22 October protest for no good reason.  Having witnessed the heavy handed treatment they received at the 19 October protest, I have to say I'm not surprised.  On the 19th, there were 14 officers present and they quickly lost control once the activists did what they'd gone there for - and started protesting as the live export lorries made to enter the port.

Clearly someone decided that what was needed for the smaller gathering on the 22nd was four times the number of officers and a few arrests to show the rabble who's in charge.  The following pictures were taken on the 19th October and show the police overreacting and losing the plot.
