The head of the Council of Europe - a mainly human rights watchdog based in Strasbourg, France and not an EU institution - branded the protesters bigots and said they were a threat to Europe's values.Gates of Vienna notes that in an act of good old fashioned act of traditional European repressiveness, that the Police went straight for the suits
"It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion," secretary general Terry Davis said.

It’s interesting how the police deliberately targeted many of the suits, who were not inciting anyone or threatening revolt.
