Most protesters are peaceful people, who simply want to air their grievances and seek remedies. They have no wish or desire to use violence or engage in any anti-social acts, in order to achieve their demands. And almost as a rule, they avoid doing or saying anything, that will discredit them or lose them precious support. Protesters know, that they can not win through violence and that violence on their part, will only give the authorities the perfect excuse to use violence against them. And protesters understand, that the authorities have more violent means than they do and in a showdown, they will lose and lose badly. Also serious protesters, will never engage in any acts that will tarnish their image and lose them support or sympathy. So, how do authorities, break-up peaceful protesters or demonstrators and how do they justify it. The answer is, they use the very same method, that has worked so many times in the past. The authorities infiltrate the protest or demonstration and plant or insert their people, who then engage in contrived violence and other negative acts. These acts are then blamed on the whole gathering.The infiltrators attack the police, urinate in public, use drugs and so on. All this is done in an attempt to tarnish and discredit the protests or demonstrations. The authorities make sure, that these acts get maximum publicity. With that the stage is set. Once the authorities, have convinced many, that the protesters or demonstrators are a threat and a nuisance, the police move in on them, with force. So, next time you hear news of protesters or demonstrators engaging in violence or other negative behavior, ask yourself does it hurt or help their cause? Why would real protesters or demonstrators do something that works against them? And who benefits, when a protest or demonstration, gets out of control, the authorities or demonstrators. By finding out who benefits, you can also know who's behind it. Serious protesters will never do something, that hurts their cause!
