''We simply crossed the road to sit on the ground as we have done since April 13 when they took our chairs and cordoned the Unity Fountain. Why are they barring us from the fountain? No reason given.''

''Thank God there was none. Apart from severe tear gas inhalation; it is divine that there were few vehicles on the road when it happened.''

Yassin confirmed that no BBOG member was injured during the incident.
