With the latest issues occurring in Toronto with the G8/G20 summit, we have seen another protest turn into a violent act led by the Black Bloc.
Now with that being said my question to all is this:
does it make sense anymore to protest? knowing full well that these idiots are going to appear and create more violence and destruction and increase the odds ten fold of innocent people getting arrested, (again??)
I realize that it is our right to do so, so we don't need to go deep into that part of it.. that's not my point. the point is, why do you go to these protests knowingly aware that something stupid will happen?! you may get arrested and have no rights and perhaps even get abused physically by a police officer or two!
Is it worth all the struggle anymore?
the last two big events held in Canada (Vancouver Olympics and Toronto Summit) have both created protests with violent situations. so it's pretty clear that the next big event held in Canada of that magnitude will create yet another.
I'd be the biggest stupidest moron to even think about attending one of these.
you're just putting yourself at the hands of the officers, knowing full well what Will happen!
you are naive to think that things will be ok! Protests lately have always had negative effects because the morons start.
