Peaceful protest is the only way; emails &letters.

CIVILISATION is the result of a society that works together, peacefully, for the good of all. Individual human rights should always be subservient to the rights of society to prosper, otherwise the caveman with the biggest club prevails for his own ends (read Pirsig).

The student riots sadly ended with many people hurt and we can sympathise with them. But the problems stemmed from the inability of the student leaders to control the yob element within their ranks and from the many gangs of youths who came along just for the fun of creating havoc.

Before fingers are pointed, the students should note that, had they conducted a peaceful demonstration as intended, there would have been no need for police intervention.

The police are there to support a civilised society. We should support them. Arthur Green, Allerton
