Anti-Israeli protest at QV Square

Friday, July 1, 2011

Was having dinner with fellow friends from interstate universities at Old Town Kopitiam Mamak. Suddenly a large crowd appeared.



Turned out that the cause was supply of ration packs for Israeli soldiers by Max Brenner. Protesters refused to move from QV Square and turned violent.

Full chronology of the protest in photos coming later.

[UPDATE]

I learnt that it was the police who cracked down on the peaceful protest. The post with more photos and videos here

  1. "protesters turned violent"...i think you need new glasses bro! Stop posting nonsense when you're blind. I was part of the peaceful protest. In case you don't know, it's legal to stage a non-violent in Australia, and the police knew about it obviously. Even non-protesters around (just passers-by) will tell you who charged first...and its the fucken police! now if you could stop propagating lies it'd be nice. Be involved in the campaign or shed up
