British police are planning to use a new untested kettling tactic in a bid to control the crowd in upcoming Trades Union Congress (TUC) massive anti-cuts protests.
The TUC protest rallies scheduled for March 26 are expected to attract over 100,000 people from across the UK including trade unionists, public servants, teachers, doctors, students, activists against tax dodging and even off-duty police officers.
Chairman of Police Federation Ian McKeever has warned that many police officers who are assigned to patrol the protest marches are feeling a lot of sympathy with protesters as they are faced with thousands of redundancies and £500 million in pay cuts.'
