Officers surround ‘sit-in’ and remove ‘protesters’ in drill ahead of civil disobedience movement

“Protesters” blocked a road on the grounds of the Police College in Aberdeen yesterday in what force insiders described as a “major exercise” to prepare for possible trouble during the Occupy Central mass sit-in.

All parking at the college was suspended for the day to facilitate the seven-hour exercise, which began at about 10am.

During a simulated march, there were chants of “make way” and “stop the northeastern New Territories new-towns plan” from the 30 or so protesters, all of whom were officers. One group barged into police and another blocked the road.

Officers then formed a cordon around the sit-in, while other police arrived with barricades. Protesters lying on the ground were carried to a bus nearby.

Watch: Hong Kong police stage ‘major exercise’ in preparation for Occupy Central

Police have clashed twice recently outside the Legislative Council complex with protesters fighting plans for new towns.

A police spokesman said yesterday’s exercise was part of the force’s regular drills to prepare officers to “handle public processions more professionally”.

Some 4,000 officers will be deployed to maintain order during the annual July 1 march, part of their preparations for the Occupy Central protest, which will go ahead if the government fails to come up with an acceptable plan for the 2017 chief executive election.

The Police College will be turned into a temporary detention centre during the July 1 operation, police sources said.

  • When you look into who is behind those “protests” in Honkong – eventually you find British NGOs – which are financed by the same “Imperial” covens (banks and off-shore financiers) – that paid no attention to the ONE MILLION Brits who demonstrated against Britain’s “partnership” with the U.S. attack against Iraq in 2003. As long as British NGOs are involved the motive is not “freedom”: Ask the Irish ! Or the Kenyans who were tortured by British troops during the struggle for independence. Remember Britain’s support for South Africa’s Apartheid dictatorship. Britain, the USA, France, Germany and other European states – crushed China’s independence at the beginning of the 20th Century in the “Boxer War”, and Britain went twice to war against China in the middle of the 19th century: The “Opium Wars” forced China to permit the importation of opium from British occupied India. China paid for the British occupation of India. The U.S. and its NATO allies are now conducting a stepped up campaign to destabilize India, Brazil and China. India cut financing from “outside India” for 4,141 NGOs of the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, Scandinavia – that are active in India due to: “Diversion of funds against the national interests of India”. Brazil can only watch the most prominent “foreign” NGOs – because its intelligence has no authorization. For a leaked document of Brazil’s intelligence watching the most prominent “foreign” NGOs – seach : CONSERVA AFIADA ABIN ONGS. China: The New York Times had report on June. 28. 2014: ” China scrutinizes foreign NGOs”. A cartoon was published in China showing the famous scene of the U.S. Marine planting the U.S. flag on the hill in Okinawa – by instead of the U.S. flag – there are the letters NGO. Watch now – as each case of rape or collapsed construction site in India – with 1.3 billion people ( regrettable as both are) appear in the headlines circulated by British and U.S. “international media”. India has 4 times the population of India: Obviously there will be higher number of crimes and mistakes. India has its neolithic caste system and religious manias – but the U.S. is not the beacon of reason and equality.
