The Politics of Protest is a weak politics, the politics of weakness, the politics of weak people, with weak imaginations -- powerless people. Powerless persons must use whatever tactics they can of course. But that is the point.
BERLIN - A young girl who was paraded at a pro-Palestinian demonstration in Berlin wearing a mock explosives belt around her waist has touched off an investigation by justice officials.
Police are seeking the man who carried the girl on his shoulder at Saturday's protest, presumably her father, Berlin judicial spokeswoman Ariane Faust said Tuesday. Prosecutors have opened an investigation that could lead to criminal charges against the man for condoning acts of violence, she said.
