G20 Protests (Friday)
[previous] :: [next]
You may have seen the iconic burning police cars that were torched on Saturday but a lot happened around the G20 that didn't involved fires or riot police. Lots of police, perhaps, but no violence, despite the protesters public announcement that they were "looking to bring them war". This is the second-largest march that took place on Friday, lead by OCAP, the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty. The protesters gathered at Allan Gardens and marched west along College, south along University, and after a brief (but somewhat tense) standoff were routed back to Allan Gardens where they tented overnight.

This somehow amuses me...

I find the theater of the whole thing amusing - a bunch of neo-hippies basically dare the cops to do come after them and when the cops make a move they run like the French army facing a Daisy air rifle. In the end the cops are still standing in formation while the mob hurls insults at them.
As for 'serfs' facing 'soldiers of the realm'? Really? A bunch of college dilettantes is more like it. Try standing up to a regime that has no qualms about 'disappearing' you like the electionprotesters in Iran did and maybe we can talk about 'serfs' and 'soldiers of the realm'.

Yup. But if you believe some of the hype around here, these folks are freedom fighters standing up against an oppressive "police state".

That's actually a rlaley nice talk. It made me remember that movie, Gattacca (which was an excellent movie I might add), picturing a society which had everything predetermined by our genes and how one person managed to overcome that. Anyway, back to the point I was trying to make Yea While our genes are not our fate, they do give us advantages. I guess it's like poker starting off with a pair of aces. You might end up losing to someone who had low cards in the beginning, but that is unlikely (I know that was deep :p )
