Last night, at an opposition Rally in AMK, two photographers were involved in an incident with two opposition Party supporters.
Apparently, one of the photographer decided to take a photo of on of the supporters,Mr.A.
Mr A did not seem to like this and scolded the photographer.
However the photographer claimed to be on a school project, which he really was.And Mr A believed him and even shook hands with him.
But, Mr B, the other OP supporter called the photographer a ''running dogs'' of the PplActprty(as he thought they were from the press), and asked Mr A not to believe the photog.
The photog got angry and said ''eh, i can sue you for slander ok''.
The word ''sue'' angered Mr.A and B, and a scuffle erupted.
The two supporters tried to grab hold of the cameras belonging to the two photogs and almost assualted them, if not for the bystanders who stopped them.
They used vulgar language on the photographers and continued to threathen them.
At last, the two photogs left without saying a thing.
Let this serve as a warning to all photogs who are shooting at rallies among the crowd.please dont use any sensitive words or even mention the word government(for opposition rallies).
This issue reflects on the amount of respect photographers get when outside.
As long as you hold a camera, people assume you to be from the press immediately...is this fair?
