Small revolution - not many killed

Demonstration against the "bedroom tax", Norwich City Hall, March 30th 2013.

One was irresistibly reminded of the scene on the Odessa Steps in Eisenstein's "Battleship Potemkin"; those steps also did not have access for wheel chairs or mothers with prams as I recall.

I have been asked to point out that in last Saturdays demonstration the police did not fire upon the protesters but then neither did they in Odessa as the whole scene in the film was a bit of fantasy from the director's head. The coincidences and similarities between the two events just keep piling up and are a bit spooky really.
