Traditionally it has been the content of communication that has been the focus of government surveillance but the police are increasingly interested in data mining techniques to uncover patterns of association.

After telling one activists to stop using the megaphone as it was annoying the workers inside and the activist carrying on, he was arrested for section 5, but with four activists and only two police officers the games began.
