THE MAN IN BLACK BLOC Posted by Hello

I've rethought my attitude about street protests since the days almost 5 years ago when I participated in the WTO protests in Seattle. It's all too easy for a well meaning movement to be hijacked and misrepresented in the mass media because of immature kids who think that "fucking shit up" constitutes some kind of political statement. It's my fear that this will happen in the streets of NYC this next week when the Republicans plan to dance on the graves of the victims of 9/11 for political gain. That said, I wish I could be there to defend the honor of Johnny Cash, who was no Republican.
