    We will know the true relation between both when the next student demonstration starts.
    The way forward should be to make the intention to demonstrate known to the police ahead of time so that the police can provide protection for demonstrators. Also students should on their part respect the presence of the police and warn their members to keep to a peaceful demonstration.
