I was headed to town to meet a girlfriend for a coffee, when I spotted the march for green issues. I took the opportunity to film the crowd as the procession moved through the streets, with various placards and even some samba drumming.

Here’s the sum:
Worthy cause + relative societal happiness = an enjoyable protest
Worthy cause + social unrest = a messy confrontation
