The answer to that question is really obvious. Pretty much everyone on this board is laughing and laughing bitterly.

In the US, a bunch of White Rightwing Fuckwads took over government property while bearing guns, threatening to kill anyone who tried to stop them. And the authorities were like, "It'd be better if you'd stop, but hey, I don't want you to feel too pressured by all this." Yeah, they did eventually drop the hammer on these guys, but that was after giving them chance after chance to resolve things peacefully, repeatedly bending over backwards.

Meanwhile, the Native Americans at Standing Rock protesting having a pipeline cut through their sacred land? Authorities were all, "Say hello to tanks and tear gas, mothereffers!" pretty quick.
