The tale most often told about the recent evolution of the environmental movement in Europe is that it has become so institutionalised that it no longer captures the imagination or commands the support of any large part of the public. In this version of events, institutionalisation is accompanied by demobilisation, protest is in decline and the prognosis for the movement is uncertain (van der Heijden 1997; Diani and Donati 1999).

There has been a major shift in attitudes to protest, in public opinion and even within the police in these countries. For instance, the German police union campaigned for greater court protection for the right to demonstrate. Most police forces are prepared to tolerate some illegal action. But they are more sympathetic to protesters they can understand and identify with—such as strikers—than to direct action by the young, whom they see as misinformed and manipulated. They are more tolerant, even of anarchist protests, when they can establish some kind of dialogue (della Porta 1998).
