Anyone’s guess really, firstly I think that just possibly the authorities fear that it could lead to a bigger protest than the one that they were trying to quell, plus Tree Huggers United from all over the world would form a line to castigate U.K. authorities.
Other than that, it seems to me that the underlying feeling is, (similar to when groups of “travellers” trash private property, and whole villages), do nothing, eventually they’ll get fed up, and go home, or elsewhere.
