The Eida Haredis was worried that people had become complacent regarding the "Shabbos protests". It had already become "routine". They decided that they had to reawaken the shetach, and announced they were goign to step it up with much more protests, both in number and in actual activity.
And now they are upset and complaining that the police also stepped it up and responded in kind.
What did they expect? Only they have the "right" to turn it up a notch?
