violence is not cool...whoever is to blame

This is a great example of going way to far; by people hijacking a protest for their own purposes. Anarchists are alive and well in the northwest. It's important to point out that their methods and outlook in no way represent the peace movement, however, I also suspect that much violence and vandalism may have been carried out by those 'loyalists' of the Bush agenda in an effort to discredit all those expressing dissent.

"In struggling for human dignity the oppressed people of the world must not allow themselves to become bitter or indulge in hate campaigns. To retaliate with hate and bitterness would do nothing but intensify the hate in the world. Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can be done only by projecting the ethics of love to the center of our lives."

Martin Luther King, Jr.
