The poll tax protests (riots) in the 80s stopped the poll tax. (we ended up with council tax instead,so "the man" still won)
I've been to protests,3 anti war ones in london,including the first one,where 2 million people took to the streets.And a few anti racism/anti fox
hunting ones. I think it's great,ok,so it's pretty much pointless in the majority of cases,but you can't just lay down and let them do what ever
the hell they like!! If all the people who were opposed to the war actually came to london and stood up together,then maybe something different would
have happened. I think it's a crying shame that more people don't protest againt the goverments. How else are we going to be heard,writing them a
polite letter? The only way is direct peaceful protest. (to stay within the law) And i'd urge everyone and anyone to go to a protest if they agree
with the cause. We need to have more people there to actually represent what the people think. Cos you ARE the people,these things affect YOU!!
