Block out the faces of protesters.
30 Jul 2004
Some cops are claiming protesters struck back (and I hope they did). However, cops may want pictures of the people at the protests to identify those alleged to have defended themselves. I suggest blocking out the faces of any protesters on photos that have not yet been released.

Fuck yes we struck back, not that our fists and plastic water bottles did much good against batons and full body armor.

The NYPD had three quarters of a million drunks in Times Square New Years Evev and not one arrest.

How come you guys ALWAYS have problems?

Maybe it's NOT the cops....

FUCK you Wesley Cook or whatever your goddamn name is. How about I give you eight inches of my cock in your ass you fucking fascist pig!

Cook, I assure you, the attacks were unprovoked and all the arrests were phony or trumped up. They tried to get me for "carrying bags of feces" (which, of course, I was not). Luckily legal aid got to me first.

Plus, political protests are always charged. Everyone just wants to party and get laid on New Year's Eve, holmes.
Police did attack
30 Jul 2004
I taped the news showing cops hitting people, and I was right there and saw it all. It was definitely the cops' fault. Boston Globe reported that the protesters were shoving back, but I was literally right there, and the protesters linked arms and refused to move. Agreed on the drunk people. This is about the idea that protesters are violent (when it is really the police) so the cops are easily spooked. For example, the "molotov cocktail" was a pirate hook being worn by someone in the group of 50-100 pirates (not to mention that mc's don't have wicks like that, they have a rag fuse hanging out, not a stationary one on WHITE paper mache. ) Remember folks, they have the guns, clubs, riot gear, and gas, while we have fists and voices. They are the dangerous ones.

You got your asses kicked and ran like the pussies you are.

Question: Where were the "thousands in the streets" that you promised? GO HOME AND CASH YOUR TRUST FUND CHECKS....And take a shower. Vote Bush !!!!!!

Pussies hide behind body armor. Pussies use clubs and rubber bullets against unarmed demonstrators. Pussies start wars they don't have to fight. Pussies bomb defenseless countries with no WMDs.

Pussies don't take the streets facing thousands of riot cops. You would probably know that if you weren't such a pussy yourself.

We "fought back" as well as unarmed, untrained people can against cops with clubs, guns, and body armor.

The Protesters...Hats Off!
31 Jul 2004
Tell ALL you couch wimps.
If anyone is pushing me down.
Or pushing your back to make you walk faster.
Eventually, anger is going to occur.
I'd go off. Wouldn't you?
All for the bullshit of corporate politics! (And IT'S bullshit!!!)
I look at the protesters as keeping OUR democracy alive. Without them? Give in to Corporate domniance, of our democracy?
I don't think so...
Hooray! For the Protesters!
