Thoughts on this?
It would appear that everything they're doing is within British Law. I'm not sure it's the wisest use of that power, but neither is protesting expansion at the world's most congested airport...
Illegal government tyranny? No, they follow the laws, they're just using ones not intended for protestors, and in the process it will look like they enjoy stomping on civil liberties. They have to deal with the fallout, so we'll see whether they think in the end it was worth it.
If they weren't so robust there would be no reason to enforce these laws. They are ominously protesting outside of an airport, which can cause delays are mishaps in the system. These rowdy protestors could take the focus of the airport security off of looking for terrorist. Instead of watching out for terrorists, they would be watching out for unnecessarily interruptive protestors.
The government should not be allowed to keep people from protesting. However, private citizens should be allowed to kick out people on their property.
Altough I'm well aware that britain respects very little about it's citizens, and has free reign to do whatever it wants.
