Rioting? OF COURSE IT WILL WORK!

In People, World News on April 4, 2009 at 1:35 pm

Protesters get stupid at the G20 summit. The pictures have been around for a long time, I wasn’t really bothered with it but everyone has a limit.

I understand standing up and being vocal about your point of view, I understand trying to encourage change in a system that is not working. They’re all respectful things to do.

But rioting? That just degrades everything you stand for- it takes you down from being an activist to being a damn fool.

Personally, I feel sorry for the policemen and all the people on crowd control. They don’t need to be attacked like that! It’s not like the police officers make the rules- there’s no need to take out your anger on someone who can’t do anything about your problems!

And do they even consider what they’re doing to their group’s image? Nobody is going to respect that sort of behaviour and I personally find it disgusting. Someone died because the rioters wouldn’t let the police and paramedics do their job and help someone who’d collapsed!

Protesting something is all well and good- but you don’t need to get stupid about it.
