The latest from AP showed 649 arrested from an estimated 2000 protestors. Seems like more than just a handful of bad apples. Too bad that no one learns the whys of the protests when traffic is stopped and windows are broken.

Actually, I have several friends that are in DC this weekend, and there are about 20,000 demonstrators there.

THere are different events and not everyone is demonstrating all at the same events.

you will see more in the next two days to come, when the bulk of the meetings take place, especially Paul O'Neill's speech.

The Jubilee group is a very peaceful one and I seriously doubt you will see any of their protesters causing this type of disruption.

The people causing a lot of the commotion , breaking glass, throwing rocks, - are not these people.

These are the anti capitalists. They can range from ANTI globalization groups to anarchists - many of the same groups that caused all the ruckus in Seattle a few years back.
