63. We live just outside of Seattle
>She says that people try to dissuade protest many ways, including the way that you're trying right now.<

In light of yesterday's events, it might be wise to leave the young ones at home. Then again, what the hell do I know? We live 30 miles east of Seattle.

>Doesn't anyone remember Seattle? They didn't kill people in Seattle. They tried to make the protestors look like the irrational instigators of violence.<

Our grandparents were marching with the union members. I am here to tell you that everyone painting themselves as "peaceful" that day was not, were not government plants, and had come to Seattle from other areas to raise hell.

I don't think it's a great idea to bring kids to most protests, peaceful or not. I seem to remember kids and parents being pepper sprayed in Portland awhile back, for instance.
