It was seriously strange last night to see our tiny little street sealed off by police in riot gear. To watch from the balcony as the police, wearing kevlar and holding perspex shields and batons, form a human shield to cut off the traffic while the thugs chanted and yelled. To see the riot police breakup and jump into their armoured van and speed off to the next location. To see the screaming skinheads being escorted by a row of silent armed guards to make sure none acted upon the hate speech they were spouting.
