Let us think logically for a minute and attempt to put a few short facts together in context. In order to do this I find it beneficial to apply this
in a very personal manner, one that will be closer to home so that you can ask yourself "What would I do?"
For this exercise in logical thought I have done some youtube video gathering, many people's personal favorite for visual aid

Imagine if you will, you did not agree with your government for policies and procedures like these;

Therefore, you decided since the government was wrong, you and all your friends, now defined as those who believed as you do on this matter, decided

(everyone can watch this video I think if your not a child)
Now, when your government is oppressive and in the wrong, you cannot expect them to treat people like human beings, so peaceful protests will be
