US Press Freedom Tracker reports sporadic harassment from individual protesters, from both sides, demanding deletion of images.

This gas occurred against established media outlets as well as individuals.

Sine protesters fear identification and future arrests but want to be counted for their tribes. And protesters need people to actually join their causes, not just film.

But some demonstrators want publicity, like the STS movements, or climate change protesters who may want to be arrested.

Generally you can legally photo anyone in an outdoors public space, including police.
