Subject: RE: 5 Dems to Stand Trial for Slashing GOP Tires
McGrath...Like yourself , I marched with the hundreds of thousands against the war.
We marched in an orderly manner to the rallying point, where we heard a few speaches from a few politicians,then in an orderly manner, we went home for our tea.
The end of the 15th Feb Anti War march was a complete anti- climax.
We had so much raw emotion amongst the crowd, and we squandered it, the government continued to lie and manipulate, in fact they completely ignored us.

Looking back on the demonstrations of the past, the ones that made the difference were those where force was used, damage caused ,and a signal given that the people would fight for what they believe in.

Our rulers are quite happy to keep us fooled that we can achieve anything by "democratic means".
They dont like it when we jump out of the box..Ake
