Looked like scenes from a middle eastern uprising. How can people on ATS condone the police using tear gas? Just because you don't like what the movement stands for, these are still your fellow citizens, who are upset with whats happening to their world. The police massively over reacted and to those who support and condone their actions, shame on you.
"first they came for the communists....."
This is frightening. Whatever happened to peaceful protests? It seems the powers want us all dead.

Why dont we just protest the real issues?
Not worry about violence?
I've been wondering this for a while now.
Everyone wants to talk about the police violence, but every minute that you do, is a minute that you are NOT discussing how to make the protests more effective.
All this police violence, arrests etc... are in no way helpful to achieving any kind of goal. So why expend any energy on it?
How about this for an idea...
- obey the law
- come up with a plan
- follow that plan while obeying the law
- dont get sidetracked.
