25. Yeah they always do this. We need a strategy that works even in the face of this.

There is a lot of video online of globalization protests from toronto, pittsburgh,miami. There are always agents/plants that start violence either to make the movement look bad or to give an excuse to crack down. I don't know the answer but to be successful the movement needs some strategy that will work despite these hardball kinds of tactics by the other side.

I wonder if some of them could be private security hired by the banks? Hopefully there is a ton of video. And some of these people are going to be identified as plants.

But will it even matter if the average American watching on TV just sees the orgiginal headline story of the buring cars or whatever, but they never hear that it was really a setup?

Maybe there should be increased self policing or something? The worst thing is if innocent people are getting their stuff damaged by this.

Thanks to everyone out there protesting sensibly.
