While the organizer denied he had any money in his hands, some of the people who were supposed to participate in the street protest complained they are the ones suffering the consequences of protesting in the streets, tear gas by police, being arrested and thrown to jail but they don't get a penny while big protest organizers are profiting from their misery.
