1) Everyone has a right to protest. The police have refused to give permits to these protesters, so they are forced to hold the illegally. This means the leaders will get arrested. They had little choice in this course of action. 2) Thinking that the government is not responsible for the economic welfare of its citizens in extremely naive. There are many things that the government could do for its citizens in response to high house prices. 3) Criticizing protesters for not 'doing more' or 'having a better plan' misses the point of protests. For a lot of people, protest is not a calculated political maneuver with a specific aim. It's people who are upset, and who want their voice to be heard. And they will be heard.
