Look at the pictures, this is the confrontation of good against evil, progress against reincarnated figures from the Dark Ages.
"We are women, we are human, but we don't have any rights!" protesters chanted.
As the police started making arrests members of the public who had nothing to do with the protest repeatedly shouted: "Leave them alone."
One man screamed at the police, saying: "Why do you take money from the government to beat women like this?"
