I agree with most of the people here. What they're protesting is noble, but there are better ways to do it that don't disrupt everyone's lives. TIP for the hippies: If you annoy and alienate people, you are doing nothing to help your peace movement. You are turning people OFF of it, in fact. Get creative and think of a better way to get your message out that doesn't piss people off and result in you being crushed by 2000-pound machines.

Good post Tayesin as usual you are one of the more intellegent and humane posters.


You can't reach many of the mindless matrix drones, they truly are asleep, lost and heartless souls.

With our voting system both here in America and probably worldwide now being a sham, there now is only one recourse and that is to peacefully rebel openingly.

That girl yes did block traffic, how dare she make someone late for their drone servitude job!

The end result of open rebellion will be met with the rebellious being mowed down such as this young woman was and I find it again both ironic and disturbingly sad that there are so many people posting here that simply found it "humorous", don't care or think she "deserved it".

These folks are not able to see the big picture and or replied in such a immature and heartless manner shows that they do not realize this young woman was willing to put her life on the line for each and everyone of us, our children and our children's children.

Flash forward ten years from now, for those of you reading this that have a 8-15 year old..........look at your child right this minute and now picture them coming home in a coffin from yet another war or worse yet, picture most of humanity wiped out in a major war, this time - our cities leveled...............everyone you know is dead or dying.

God, when will humanity learn, wise up, grow up? Does history have to keep repeating itself, don't you folks ever learn that war and disunity is what is destroying our species, that and allowing a handful to control and manipulate the many?

911 was a false flag operation carried out to manipulate the American People into yet another war.

All our wars have been manipulated events by whomever is really running (and ruling) our planet........yet the common man just isn't able to grasp the full extent of our slavery.

People will cheer the soldier that marches off to fight the rich, elite's wargames and yet mock a true hero, someone that is trying to wake up the masses that we humans are being manipulated yet again into war, war and yet more wars.............will the masses ever wake up or become "assimilated" via covert conquering of our species?

Our votes do not count, people that are placed into our highest positions of power are simply that "placed" and humanity is allowed the ritual of "voting" to give the hairless slaves an illusion of freedom.

The acquisition of power, on this planet is never by choice, it is planned right down to the smallest details leaving no room for chance (or majority choice).

One must than pause and ask, who is really running the show on planet Earth?

Those that are awake and aware know that what passes as freedom and liberties are illusions, we are not a free planet - and we are still distracted, manipulated and divided causing us to go to war and hurt each other...........simply look at the heartless replies right here on this thread.

Anyone protesting against war is a hero in my book.

I read a book many years ago by William Bramley called, "The Gods of Eden" this man said the book took him seven years to write and when he began this book, he was going to write about why men go to war...........his extensive research took him down a totally different, dark and, twisted path, that of a possible covert alien manipulation of mankind.

Below are a few videos that are quite important as Mr. Bramley does not normally grant many interviews.







Ibi victoria, ubi concordia.

People need to learn that their voice will not be heard. Does anyone think for a second that our government is going to say, "hey, these random high school kids reckon we shouldn't participate in a war, we should listen to them." The only thing it does is cause a major inconvenience and annoyance to everybody else. Maybe they should move to a middle eastern country where they'll actually have a reason to protest something.

And you must be a sick and cold hearted person.
So it is okay to try to KILL someone just because you are a bit late to your job?? How can you even defend something like that?? Yes, the kids are idiots, but do they deserve to be killed just for delaying traffic??
Some of you people never cease to amaze me, no wonder why the world is like it is.

And maybe we should ban any kind of peaceful demonstrations while we are at it??

This no longer works, have tried it................the real power behind the throne are hidden so well and have so much security as well as it is now illegal to protest in large numbers without a permit.

Again, the common man has less power than he/she realizes from a legal standpoint.

The corporations run and rule America (and now most of the planet). Read my location.

CEO's are only the henchmen, for the most part, they run the corporations, some actually do have ownership but with the truely large corporations the real power, the board members and top stock holders are so well hidden, they remain nameless and unknown.

Again, it will take a large majority to rebel peacefully, refuse to go to work, protest in large numbers in order to cut the bonds of humanity's slavery...............but I feel that will never happen because we have very few heros.

Most people are scared, compliant, asleep, distracted and dumbed down.

Possibly humanity deserves to be "upgraded" but the question is what type of upgrade will that mean?

Cold, unfeeling, no empathy, cruel, service to self.

Each of us has a choice - together we can make a difference, but united we stand, divided we as a species will fall.

He Hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack Of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my Association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you With Hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the Land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, And that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced, For even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised That it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said " We live in The greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"
Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the People said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And The people said, "Show us the money!" And the he said, "
Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.."
Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and Having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with Radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with Them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they Will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people Said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons Into free cars for the people!"

Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes." And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." So "The One"
said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!"

Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!" And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"
Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."
And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.
Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!"

Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty,
Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And the people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff.
The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.

Then "The One" said, "I am the "the Chosen One"- The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is not fair!!"
And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built and the Chinese cheered.

And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.

You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not.
It's happening RIGHT NOW. 14 Trillion debt

What a disgusting thread and horrible display of gutter level behavior. People actually supporting purposeful injury and potentially death to protesters.

Lol at this imaginary right to control the streets because you have a car. Egotistical lunatics. It's your right to drive ergo you can just run over anyone who happens to be in front of you? Maybe the next time someone asks me to put my cigarette out I'll use their eye as an ashtray. Or maybe I don't, because that's not how civilised and decent human beings act, regardless of their position, views or perceived rights.

This thread is just more evidence of the media brainwashing; That protesters are evil lay-abouts and they have no value. And sorry to say it, but another instance of bloody thirsty Americans demonstrating their lack of regard for others.

I laugh too because in Britain amid the student protests many Politicians and intellectuals were on TV saying violence isn't the answer and peaceful protest works. It's funny because their main example of peaceful, effective protest, was to have a sit-out in the streets. Which could work, if you were in a civilised country. Should come with a "Dont try this at home" warning in America, too many people who enjoy being slaves.

Anyone who supports this should be downright ashamed.

If one's crazy enough to sit in front of cars, I'm surprised they don't put down some caltrops as extra discouragement to any driver thinking of running the line. (Because if they do, they wont get very far.) Now if you think they're hard to get, not really. With some old golf balls and a few other things, they're very easy to improvise.


But hey, getting run over is one of the risks if blocking traffic is your way of making a point. (Particularly when not using vehicles to do it.) I guess in these cases some protesters actually took one for the team.

Right, a lady I use to play poker with had a grandmother that was part of the French Resistence during WWII and was killed for standing up for what she believed in.

No more war...............sounds pretty good to me.

I've been on the front line of a Vietnam War Protest facing cops with billy clubs and shields.........a guy four people down from me got clubbed in the head, but hey maybe that little naked kid running down a dirt road on fire from napalm in a faraway country doesn't matter to the likes of you.

You actually justify someone running another human being over with a car.

Vietnam


Iraq

I remember this well.. A shocking picture of this little girl running for her life and badly burned. She is alive today and living in Canada with her husband and children. But it was a long terrible painful road for her. She had many operations to get her life back.Thanks to the American photographers there that day, she might not have survived.
They took her to the hospital and cked on her regularly.
I have wondered what happened to the baby... a mother was carrying with his burned skin hanging off. This sorrow cuts you to the bone. These are the innocents that pay the penalties for those waging wars.
MY uncle (21 then) died in WWII, My cousin(25 then) died in Vietnam, and I have one nephew in Irag now. One cousin was sent home, he was injured when his vehicle was blown up.
Thanks for posting those pictures again....a good reality ck.

Under no circumstance must we give way to a violent revolution................that is what TPTB want so they can clamp down and institute Marshall law, round us up and contain us.

A violent revolution will be playing right into their hands.

There is such a thing, and the Asians know how to do it, it is called passive resistance......much smarter.





The elite are trying to put a lid on the mass awakening that is now taking place and revolting in a violent manner will give them exactly what they want, the trump card to clamp down and turn the entire planet into a police / military state.

It looks to me, that many posters (on this thread especially) actually want to live in a police state. They want to be controlled, they want to be subservient. They must do, there is no other explanation to it.

Whilst I certainly don't condone, or find amusing protestors being run over, I also wonder what they hoped to achieve, the police would have eventually arrived and dispersed them and if they still refused to move, they would be arrested, and the message they were trying to impart would be completely ignored.

I also find it a bit disturbing that everyone who agrees with the protestors actions have deemed that the right to block the road is far more important than all of those who need to use the road. What if an emergency vehicle became stuck in the blockade in a situation where a few minutes can mean life or death to someone, for example a heart attack victim in an ambulance who dies en route to the hospital because of these actions, or a fire engine en route to a serious fire or road traffic accident where seconds can make a difference to the victims chance of survival?

Also for those that say well why didn't the motorists just turn round and go a different route, that can actually be impossible at times because roads can be gridlocked very easily when a constant stream of traffic keeps adding to the gridlock - the drivers at the back of the queue have no way of knowing what is causing the gridlock and often by the time you are in it, you cannot just turn round and go another way and if an emergency vehicle gets stuck in one of these gridlocks then these protestors may actually have directly contributed to the deaths of innocent victims!

As for the second video, I thought it was a womens health centre that was being blockaded, so its sole purpose is probably not just for abortions, women may being attending for all matter of health issues, and to be fair to the driver, he was already moving when they threw themselves in front of his pick up, the narrator even comments that he could not have seen them! And as for the comment that another poster made that as the driver was on their way to have an abortion so probably doesn't care about life, A) it was a man, so unlikely he was having an abortion and B) how do you know he wasn't trying to get into the clinic to take his wife, daughter, mother, sister etc to have an essential appointment with a medical professional that if she missed due to not being able to get into the clinic, may have to wait some time for another appointment?

But in most cases these protestors are in fact probably preaching to the converted anyway, I know that many citizens in the UK are totally against the war and would agree with the sentiments of the protestors, but by preventing them from going about their daily business by blocking the road, thereby causing possibly more than just minor inconvenience as not everyone driving around is just going to their "lowly, pointless minimum wage job" as other posters have indicated, there are many genuine reasons that people may face serious consequences by being delayed by such a protest, that ultimately will make no difference whatsoever!

I guess the trick is to have a way to retaliate if some *sshat decides to use his car as a weapon. The cops should have enough control over a situation to prevent idiotsa with cars from running over idiots who lie in the road, but if they can't get their act together, then it's up to the protesters to protect themselves and each other.

I can think a several ways to inspire "busy" drivers to realize that a human being isn't a speed bump.
