Can anyone tell me why there were about 10 riot vans surrounded by police motorbikes this morning?

Mrs D&O said it was more like 20 than 10 and they all disappeared down North Street towards the Phoenix, but then she didn't see what happened because she went to work.

On their way to the protest march at the EDO factory in Moulscoomb perhaps?

Probably not connected but I did see a chap I happen to know has a record and is a very scary guy indeed, in the Highstreet, as I cycled from the Station.
I was wondering what he was doing in Lewes and I supposed it might be connected to the Prison somehow. (The theory on the Neville Estate is that visitors park there which is why we get burglaries, we were broken into last year. Lewes has very low crime overall though)
What were they doing then ?

EDO demo. There were several counties' worth of constabulary slow shuffling from Coldean Lane to the entrance to EDO at 9.30 this morning. Which was all rather unnecessary.

I support wholeheartly the right to protest and demonstrate, I did so many times in my younger days. Have never understood why some that demonstrate cover their faces, presumably because they set out with the intention of breaking the law, which I do not agree with.
At lunchtime today the news on all channels gave them considerable coverage, to me point made and taken. No need to damage property to get their view across, the media have done that, on their behalf, rather well.

JRS - I think covering faces may have something to do with the growing police practice of photographing and videoing demonstrators as if the very act of protesting is illegal, and then - of course - keeping the pictures on file. I believe we have the right to demonstrate in public without being treated as criminals. Anyone who disagrees might care to consider to moving to North Korea, Cuba or China. Interestingly, the police do not take kindly to having their pictures taken.
