See updated video (some of protestors or usurpers may have encouraged riots which may not be in best interests of such a protest?) How can we who want peace strategize to minimize violent riots...or is the news merely giving ALL peace protestors a bad name? Are there other ways to protest which may be ultimately more effective?

Canadian police have arrested nearly 600 people in the wake of violent protests at the G20 summit in Toronto.

Also from the leader who sent the above item:
To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. - Arundhati Roy
