Police fired the water cannon in brief bursts against a group of the thousands of protesters who had gathered. In the video, some protesters appeared to have been hurt when they were knocked to the ground by the force of the water. Police appeared to stop using the water cannon after protesters appealed to them and some handed branches and flowers to the police as the demonstration continued
