i really dont enjoy the image of flags burning.

it is actions like that that are the underlying force in much of our troubles.

I'm glad you mentioned that - it seems to me like the protests of last month were slightly different. Now, there is a move away from the non-violent form of protest to flag burning in Western Europe, mass arrests, etc. It's frightening.

War is part of being human. It has always been there and it will always be there. It's part of our nature.

the same arguement could be made for raping and all sorts of other injustices.

human nature is anything but desirable.

i particularly liked the poster that said "drop bush, not bombs."

Protest all you want, the only way to have a world w/o war is to have a world w/o people.

"drop bush, not bombs." how clever. was it written on hemp paper?

They're saying drop bush not bombs here, too. Also, 'stop bush the butcher'

I scared for more violence at "peace-protest" also but i will go to Amsterdam this saturday to protest against the war.

I have no false hope that this will change anything. Maybe i will go to protest only to easy my mind, to have a feeling like "look, i am standing for the things i believe in, ...I will figure it out before i am a 100 years old.

Read you,....

War and Peace
human nature to fight for them both?
I am so confused right now, the military, big business, greed and hate. I think when /if I reach 100 Rono, I'll still believe it is possible to live in peace and harmony in this world.
I just wanted to say, that something changed in Australia a couple of days ago. The government created a new office with extra powers, specifically to monitor anti-war supporters.

Violence and intimidation by anti-war protestors eviscerates their message.

I find the discussions in this forum honorable and intelligent.

Perhaps it's just me...but I fail to see what's so harmful about a group of protesters burning the flag (unless, of course, the fire burned someone at the protest).

I haven't heard any stories of violence at anti-war rallies so far.

If there was any, though, then, yeah, that does kinda contradict what they're protesting.

I have never had any special feelings toward any flag (and I have more than one citizenship). I see it as a piece of cloth. Yes, it represents more than that, but it just doesn't mean all that much to me. I know what my country is, with or withoug that flag.

1025 people were arrested in San Francisco. So I guess the civil disobedience crossed over to violence.

Thanks for posting the pictures of all those protests. I think it's really inspiring to see how many people are taking action against this war and really proves that the majority of people in the world are opposed to war.

We've had huge demonstrations in my city the last two days: there were probably about 3000 people marching through the city yesterday and there's another rally at 5pm today. People are so angry about this war that they're entirely happy to turn to civil disobedience to protest it, after all, even getting 2 million on the streets last month didn't seem to stop Blair.

Oh, and I'm walking round my university with 'NO WAR' painted on my face and getting people nodding and saying they agree with me
