Aggressive Behaviour on Picket Lines at York University (Video)

It's bound to happen. When you have striking CUPE 3903 members blocking roads, and people determined to travel down those York University roads, eventually there's going to be aggression displayed.


Yesterday, this video, taken by an undergraduates student and self-declared union supporter, was posted to Youtube. The driver appears to be calm, but clearly isn't into the idea of having his progress held up, stopping just short of hitting a resistant picketer hard enough to cause injury.

This kind of incident makes me wonder... where is the line to be drawn between workers' rights to peaceful (and mildly disruptive) protest, and the rights of the public to be relatively unaffected by said protests?
