I think we're seeing little coverage, at least from the New York protests because the turn out was hardly large enough to warrant attention by New York standards.

It may be hard to believe but there is a protest at Union Square almost any day you go down there. There's also a neat green market where you can get great fresh peppers that're red hot.

I just got back from the protest that took place in my city.
Which is in WIsconsin,we had a turn out of about 200 people,which isnt bad considering my cities size.Lots of signs and beeps,cheers and jeers.
All in all it turned out pretty well.

Is that really the best anyone can do? I'm still waiting for snafu to reply, actually.


grow up. some of us actually have things you obviously have never heard of, like responsibilities in the real world. if you unplug that comp from time to time you might find out what the real world is like.

as for the post that your getting all upset about:

your first example from september 26th:


One of the protesters arrested was Max Obuszewski of Baltimore. He’s with the NCNR. He demanded to know from the police before being cuffed by them: “What about the First Amendment?” Obuszewski, with eleven other activists, was arrested on the west side of the Capitol for trying to deliver a symbolic coffin to the U.S. Congress.


trying to deliver a box with who knows what in it to congress during an active session. exactly how many security violations did they break with that one? i can name five right of the top of my head.

second example: cindy sheehan. one of the most beligirant protestors there are. she causes havoc with the livestock and personal property of bush's neighbors in texas all in the name of protest. yeah, that's peaceful. according to your source, she was asked to move along three times before they actually arrested her. that's called stupidity and grandstanding for the media.

your third example...2004 convention. from your own source:


an undercover officer on a scooter was injured in a scuffle with demonstrators in the police-sanctioned protest zone near Madison Square Garden. Police said they arrested the 19-year-old man who was seen on videotape kicking and punching the officer.


and that was in the area that the protestors had a permit for. peaceful....right.

from the mouth of one of the organizers:


"When you march in a circle and shout your slogans, no one gets to hear them but yourselves. It's navel-gazing," said Sally Fleming, 28, a computer programmer from Brooklyn, N.Y. "Direct action gets the goods. It's direct action that gets listened to." On Tuesday, Fleming's goal was to "make the delegates aware of our presence and not let them continue with their charade and their spectacle."


you know what she's saying? make news any way possible. yeah, sure....peaceful.

i'm not even going to bother with the rest. grow up and learn a little patience.

When I was in school back in the late 60's early 70,'s we would protest against the war in vietnam , but I always pulled for the people we sent over there. Even though it was an illegal war I still felt proud of my fellow americans there. I enlisted after the war in 1975 and I know it was the right thing to do. Now we have protest out there that have been centralized as to fighting the presidents pollicies. Its all good and well that we have a voice and can protest , but what is the real reason we are protesting. I think and its my opinion that we should protest the laws that went into effect that take away our freedom and liberty. Tell the government that we can take care of ourselfs if we are given the oppertunity , because we can not let the government dictate how we live our lives as our liberty and our freedom to protect ourselfs. You see in my mind the moral decay of our country has caused dependance on government to take care of us. Now if we can just change our mind set to being more independant from government control we can be the country we are ment to be. I really think about all the wrongs this government does and some are known and some are not , but I love my country and I want to see it righted. Where is the protest of our god given rights. Ok , now you have a problem , because the our government has watered down that right and has taken the high road saying you do not need god's laws because we act on your behalf to take care of all that we think are right. Now without god's wisdom we go about without any moral thoughts. Since we have taken it out of our schools we have lost the moral upbringing we need to function morally. When we protested in the 60's and early 70's we did it with love. Of course there were radicals out there who would have rather taken the war mentality instead of love. I still remember and seeing on the news , when a student was shot by our government . That was a sad day , and to see a god fearing country do that to a person who was protesting her legal right to assembel was in my mind the start of seeing the consenquenses of our moral decay. From what I see now compaired to then is a moral decline like never before. People so concerned about themselves and not using the wisdom that we have to do the right thing. If the government is broken then we need to fix it. But how can you fix it if you need fixing yoursellfs. many blessings.

the AGENDA is

TO, to be free to stand up and speak for your self.
TAKE
CONTROL, to take control of not supporting those who do not speak for us.
FOR
CHANGING, the way things are by showing moral support to the masses.
THE
WORLD, to give the perception to the world that we are unison in nature.
TO
ACHIEVE, to achieve an understanding of what we truely want.
PEACE,

the true stage of the evolution in this reality that will not be achieved by being represented throught a facsist organization.




True freedom is yet to come and to claim it with peace will be the only way to get it.

so i cant express my opinion because it differs from yours? go back to page one...i'm merely saying that getting out and voting has a much larger effect than going and making a nuisance of yourself. if you want to protest, go for it. i'd die for your right to do it. but dont tell me that i cant come on the thread and express my opinion.

I think you have every right to post in any thread you feel the need to.Freedom of speech and debate is a good thing.I do agree with you,that voting has an major effect,but i disagree with you that "protesters" are a nuisance.Politicians have an unlimited forum to spread there views,thanks to the media.The average person gets so few forums to express themselves.The AMerican people ALSO have the right to spread there views publicly.Hense the right to assemble and free speech.But i respect your opinion,just dont agree with all of it.
