Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
that kids everywhere subscribe to: they relate internationally by it and though i find it generally sucks, being fruit of a nike-gap type corporate wet dream, it may be good in one sense - it is global. ignore the attitude and try to educate them to use their hearts, hands and brains while still young, and to avoid futile violence.

can you imagine if they all were laying in the road and blocking traffic, or something ghandian like that?

maybe it's my projection, and they know better, as the 'soft' way would certainly get a lot of them arrested, and this way doesn't.

it's that the violence turns off many who would listen.

another interesting thing: the leaders are very much in the background, and therefore unavailable for mediation, and thus banalisation.

besides, the 'movement' doesn't need spokesmen really, the media is already crawling with an overabundance, and the issues are as obvious as their collective rage.

this way its like p2p, many fragments, difficult to target.

open source networks show their fleet strength again!
