    Scene cuts to Police officer on bike
    Man talking with officer:  See, something has happened about the police force in the last few years; and what has happened is, instead of them being here to protect us,
    Police:  yeah?
    Man talking with officer:  what you’ve started to become is corporate gang, a gang of corporate security people that go around fining people for saying words.  You’ve sort of lost touch with what you’re really here to do,
    Police:  Have I?
    Man talking with officer: which is to help us.
    Police:  Have I?
    Man talking with officer:  It feels like it ..
    Police: Really?
    Man talking with officer:  Yeah, ‘cause you’re not really helping anybody by, by fining him for saying word shit, or whatever other words.

    New scene

    Man with bullhorn:  Does anyone else notice how [Canary Warf?? May be wrong] security uniforms look suspiciously like public servant police uniforms?
    Man: Yeah.
    Man with bullhorn:  They are private employees of a private area, yet they are allowed to wear a uniform which looks exactly like a police uniform, because we are entering what some people call a police state.  I would call it a Canary Warf security state.
    New scene
    Man with bullhorn:  Capitalism is a wonderful system.  OK, a few billion people get nothing.  But still, think of all the people that get lots.  Don’t worry about the fact that the Chinese people had to work for 50 cents a day.  They’re Chinese!  Who cares?  There’s a billion of them.
    New scene
    Man with bullhorn:  What I’m going to say to you guys about facing the police is that this is nothing personal, and I’m going to show you how much it is nothing personal.  [hugs 3 officers; 2 don’t respond; one says, “cheers mate.”  Hugs 4th who responds positively].
    Man with bullhorn: Ladies and gentlemen, the true thing is, I know we’re creating a scene, but creating a scene is not illegal. You were born free, you will live free, you will die free.  You are allowed to make a scene.  You are allowed to scream for joy.  You are allowed to play.  You’re allowed to cry.  You’re allowed to love people.  You’re allowed to hug people.  And we’re starting to live in a world where we’re starting to feel scared.  We’re starting to forget just how divine and special we are, just as human beings.  Every one of you is the only example of you that will ever exist, and there’s not a single authority on this world, especially not private security men, who can tell you how to behave at any time, any place, anywhere.  You are free.  You will live free.  You will die free.  The only changes that exist are in your mind.  You can do anything you want if you put your mind to it.
