Agree with Leo on this. In Vancouver in the past we've had demonstrations where the protesters were yelling insults at the cops, throwing stuff, basically being as obnoxious as possible, then as soon as the news cameras showed up they were all sweet and innocent. Protests are very rarely about a bunch of concerned citizens making a point any more -- they're as much about Big Business as any lobbying or bribery case. In too many cases, when you closely examine the people doing the protesting, you'll discover that they have an ulterior motive that wouldn't sell so well.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
