    Default G20 Protests

    And I thought Canadians were supposed to be a peaceful bunch.

    Most of the violent ones seem to be just "anarchist" kiddies who are just looking for an excuse to break things.

    Just remembering my fear and panic from earlier today made me shiver. I did not expect anything remotely like this to happen, and not where it did, either. My friends and I were actually going to go downtown tomorrow since one was working today - those are where we hang out. And that friend didn't end up going to work today... which was good, because the windows of her workplace got smashed. I'm kind of anxious to go down there and take a look at all the damage, but not until all of this is over. I can't imagine how terrifying it must have been to actually be there while everything was happening.

    I posted a lulzy thread about it here. It has a gif!

    What assholes, ruining the city like this. :< They really took things way too far, for no good reason.

    Corporations, police, media, their inability to legally be violent... basically, those violent protesters want to do whatever the fuck they want and have their cake and eat it, too.

    There are peaceful protesters who want other stuff but I have no idea what they want.

    Oh, there was one guy arrested for having pot earlier, though, and he supported the release of some pot activist... in America...

    Default Yes yes

    This does not address the inevitable agents provocateurs. Infiltration and subversion are police state standards.

    Pretty sure the dudes smashing the windows aren't "agents provocateurs.

    Ah, but one person's douchbag is another's counter-revolutionary.
