Ah, drunken student riots - the most well-meaning sort of riots. Except maybe football hooliganism. Oh, and pro-democracy riots. But really, it's the sort of riot that doesn't try too hard to be violent, because trying too hard would be uncool.
John Hartevelt from Critic was there on Saturday and he's put up a blow-by-blow account of the riot on the Critic blog. Sounds like a blast. Particularly interesting is the wide array of culturally-appropriate challenges at the students' disposal (mooning, the haka, "Fuck the Po-Leese", weird chants and generic projectile throwing). It's so PC of them.
I hope he got some good photos, though I suspect the combination of night-time photography, reflecting vests and being caught between bottles and batons would have made it quite hard.
Stay tuned this week for more riot stories...
