Plan and simple peaceful protests don't work! You will not be heard by anybody!
Although in saying that, as there is about 50 different groups protesting for 50 different reasons at the G20
Good Luck to those that attend!

Those who breaks police lines will probably be killed by several charges of Tasers bullets.
Just you watch, it will be the first of many riots coming where more than 5 people die because of police action. This is just starting. We'll have years of riots.

It's always the police that start it...couldn't possibly the jerks in the crowds who are bound and determined to start trouble, now could it? My experiance, quite by accident mind you, with the riots in Seattle a few years back showed me that there is an element within these protesters that want nothing more than to destroy things. They aren't after change, they're out to cause as much damage as possible. ...and don't even try to tell me otherwise, they showed me exactly that. So pardon me if I'm not exactly brimming over with enthusiasm for their side...
Peaceful demonstrations have accomplished many things over the course of the years. Such as the ending of our involvement in Vietnam, while there were scattered acts of violence, Kent St. being amongst them, for the most part they were peaceful.
What, pray, do riots accomplish? Other than hurting the wrong people, damaging businesses that employ people. Do you honestly believe that rioting will accomplish anything other than bringing the weight of the Man down on you?
