The remains of the fence, still fence, remains of the riot police. No question about the release of prisoners. Not a referendum, but do not get a survey. In fact, while the only victory city protest — stopped construction (and even then, it will be necessary to closely monitor).

Of course, everyone in the city knows what is now an objective balance of opinions, poll of the “Society” is quite clearly captures (in the region of 20% over the temple, in the region of 60% over the square, others do not care), and obviously not matching this result, the surveys will not be accepted by the city and will lead to a new wave of rallies. But it when still will be.
The authorities hope that by the time the rains or vacation, graduation or something else will help them. And in terms of repressive measures to prepare better. And just maybe somehow the topic will go, the urgency subside.
