Morning on the 6th July near Stirling. We see the M9 being blockaded by radical drummers who pile trees and rocks on the road. They move on when 9 Police vans turn up at high speed. But their exit into a field of cows starts a stampede. One protester is injured by. And the farmer turns up at high speed in his 4x4 and starts to threaten the protesters with a hammer. Police then run in to arrest just about everyone including the farmer.
A Bradford man explains how his stop and search was not at all thorough. If they are going to do it, then they should do it right.

When I began to write the day after the march in Gleneagles, it was the violence that griped my mind, that formed the words. I, unlike many of the people I spoke to on wednesday, had been drained by sight of it. I felt the moral force ebb away from our protest even as it happened, and it was my sincere wish to be somewhere else. But there are many other stories of that day, and I shall begin with them, because the worst effect of violence is that nothing else can be heard above it - no other voices find their way through. The issues are forgotten, even if the violence is short lived.
