Riot police fire bullets at workers in South Africa

SOUTH Africa's government faced more violent protests today as police fired rubber bullets on marchers as a strike by tens of thousands of municipal workers entered a second day.

Police broke up an angry demonstration in a Johannesburg suburb using rubber bullets after 200 residents blocked off streets in a protest over lack of service delivery by the municipality.

I haven't heard much in the news about South Africa lately. At least we know there's unrest in South Africa, like the rest of the world.

What should world leaders do when every continent on the planet is pissed off with them? More importantly, what should the people do with their so-called world leaders?

There will be two kinds of people in the future - us and them. Nothing else will matter.

The headline was a bit misleading. I'm not exactly sure why this was newsworthy. Firing rubber bullets at an unruly crowd is standard crowd control, non-lethal and usually not an excessive response.

So, what makes this crowd control different from all the other ones going on around the world? It's tame compared to the reports of soldiers firing live rounds into crowds, killing them.
