The part about this I think is the most aggravating to many people, is that the "government authority forces" act like they own the whole city, the whole country.
The people are treated like animals and are not allowed to have a political presence in their own land.
There is a lot of injustice and people want to stand somewhere in public and say "I am tired of injustice and being treated like a 2nd or 3rd class
citizen", and they want a place at the table.
But there are only a few folks with a place at the table and the "government authority forces" use violence to protect and uphold the immense power
of those few individuals.
The ones who do control the 'table' (by force) are usually viewed as 'selling out' their nation and it's peoples and it's resources.
So that's why there are still great political conflicts going on, that is why there are still protests.
Nothing has changed.
I would like to suggest that this may not have been the case had internationalist outside political and economic forces not been intervening and
attempting to usurp and control their political and economic processes.
