Arrests or repression in Copenhagen?

It seems that the Danish police have begun making mass arrests at the climate change talks in Copenhagen, with 968 people arrested on Saturday. I don;t want to say too much about, but having witnessed the UK police in action at protests, it all seems very dodgy. I suspect that the vast majority of those arrested will be innocent and that the mass arrest is more a pre-planned show of force than anything else. The draconian anti-protest laws passed before the Copenhagen summit give the police power to do almost anything, so none of this is surprising.
