24. I have to agree. I was in a big protest in Chicago in 2002
the one where we "took" Lakeshore drive. Unfortunately, a bunch of assholes also "took" buildings on route with spray-paint cans, and nearly knocked over some parents with kids in strollers. I can't waste my time marching next to someone who is begging for a confrontation with the storm troopers. I stick to writing letters and protesting in small groups, like the one today organized by Planned Parenthood in Chicago to picket a pharmacy that refused "day-after" birth control to a rape victim. Everyone there was concerned about the issues at hand, and not in fighting the cops.
