asking for permission to go to the toilet?
Police say it is unlawful because they have do not have an organiser or mapped out route, and fail to give notice.

Stuoolong said:While I agree with most of the above comments about civil liberties and right to protest, I've got little sympathy for CM. After all, most demonstration marches, demos, religious parades, carnivals etc. liaise with the police over routes, including most of the RTS events. I don't see why it would detriment CM if they did the same - refusing to do so is only adding to the car drivers perception of them as law-breaking hippies who don't give a fuck about anyone else.
