More footage of the vehicles blocked by the police ~ 2 people are arrested & taken away 

commentator says “400 people held hostage” ” riot police have blocked us from moving, after we were asked to disperse; we were trying to do this, some police have pepper spray, & tear gas, live shots have been fired into a vehicle, women were held down on the ground at gun point ” None of this is evident in this video.
