The other night (to be specific, Sunday night) I was watching the real conflict start, as buses started going up in flames and there were constant explosions from stun grenades, fireworks, gas canisters and molotov cocktails.
The demonstrators have been very careful not to damage private property, and were trying to physically manhandle a parked car out of the way of one of their hastily-erected barricades.
In the middle of all this, the car owner appeared, got in the car, drove off down the street. Given that a nearby car was overturned and on fire, it must have been his lucky day.
21.00 – people are heeding social media calls to swell numbers in the centre. Atmosphere fairly jolly. Protesters that I have seen in Lutheranska/Institutska area roaming the streets are not carrying sticks.
18.15 – in the last hour police have started to blockade a camp set up by protesters in Lutheranska.
This was set up by opposition activists yesterday opposite a row of riot police guarding an entrance to the Presidential Administration in a bid to disrupt government operations.
Two of the remaining three exits were sealed and an operation to remove a barricade 100 metres away began.
