Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There's a famous case in protest circles in Belgium, where local government issued a pay cut to staff. When Unions reached the square in the centre of one city government had called out riot police, who arrived with shields batons and water canon. Unfortunately amongst the strikers were the Fire brigade, who retreated to the local fire station, and fought back, having  more high power hoses they swept the police from the square, then filled the square with foam.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
