Tear gas is Bitch
so do a bunch of idealistic kids who don't even know what they're arguing about
or ignorant people on forums who bitch about people who acctually give a shit about our world and the people in it.

There's nothin wrong with protesting...as long as know what you're protesting about. And you have to be able to defend your beliefs with a decent arguement. 'Just because' doesn't count.
and getting violent and breaking things doesn't make an argument valid. It just gets you in trouble and people then overlook your argument because you did something illegal.
Yeah, thats one of the reasons I'm against violent protest.
But as an aside,
In Quebec, the police were tear gas happy.
The first time I was gassed, although the fence was down, protesters were keeping their distance from police and the only 'violent' were some people yelling at the cops. This resulted in tear gassed launched randomly into the crowd.
On the second day, tear gas was used to such an extent that people in the peaceful March of the Americas, which was in the lower city over ten blocks from the fence at its closest point, felt the effects of the gas. This was a legal, sanctioned march in which people of all ages, including the elderly and families with young children, participated.
This is the so called restraint Mr. Chretien commended the police for.
Where is the World Bank's next meeting? I know it's in the U.S. somewhere.
The World Bank-IMF Spring meeting is April 26-30th in Washington.
During exams of course, but at least they're not having it in Qatar.
yea, no kidding. i had a nasty run in with cops not too long ago. the things the stanley cup playoffs drive you to do... gawd
uhhh what protest was this?? i havent exactly been watching the news/ paper lately
lately? how about just over 7 years ago.
Just look at the face: it's vacant, with a hint of sadness. Like a drunk who's lost a bet.

Stop bumping old threads just for the hell of it....it's really not that exciting.
