Protesters: how quaint

Protesters at Railway Square

Pro­test­ers protest­ing about some­thing at Rail­way Square: pass­ers-by (like me) seemed to treat them as a curi­ous spec­tacle with all our cam­era phones instead of pon­der­ing whatever mes­sage they were try­ing to get through. (I tried to work out what they were try­ing to say, but I couldn’t work it out. Prob­ably “Bush Sucks” or some para­phras­ing there­of.)

An insane num­ber of police — every­one was well behaved though. I saw an officer record­ing the entire thing on tape — prob­ably not for fun­ni­est home videos. I was going to take a photo of him but I remembered the lady from Red­fern Leg­al Centre at the SULS APEC talk — “there’s only one crime, and that’s piss­ing off a police officer.”

    The power and value of protest has been severely diluted by these people who do it at every oppor­tun­ity.
