Tax protesters go on rampage
Political editor [name] writes
An organised march protesting at high tax levels has degenerated into violence on [planet]. Police are blaming a hard-core of trouble makers for the disruption, but from where I was standing pretty much all the demonstrators were involved. Numerous arrests were made, and a large number of Firearms have been confiscated. No doubt there will be plenty of smugglers looking to take advantage of others' misery.
