Not sure. I think it depends on where you go. Yesterday in Denver
they were all holding up signs that said FREE SYRIA.
Makes me a little suspicious.

The start of something big? Oh you betcha!

Individually, each person has their list of valid grievances.

Collectively, they're clueless.

A bunch of useful idiots being marched around by communist leaders.

If you like communism, you'll want to attend.

While I agree in some part with their underlying intent, they really need to work on delivery. Just watching the news and there appears to be a zombie theme (how original) with some pinhead leaning back and forth in the background, face paint and all. Rather pathetic and stupid way to garner support, but I guess everything zombie aligns well with hipsters.

Or people doing what the ##TeaPartiers## (tm) only whine about. When I was their age we took to the streets to protest the war and civil rights -- eventually it worked. I went to jail for one of those protests -- protesting the shooting of American college students at Kent state -- I consider that arrest a badge or honor.

There is no right or wrong way -- these things happen not as the normal course of things but as a reaction to to stressors on a community --- the point is regular unorganized people are putting themselves in jeopardy - of arrest of rebuke of their familys or employers --

I Coouldnt agree with you the protests are starting to look very suspicious, even alex jones is starting to move away from them.
