    Garcia Lorca Anger can be power

    was coming down by bus til i broke a bone in my foot at the weekend, i get a feeling that just being able to wobble around would be risky business for the wed.

    Bakunin I am Noodle's bitch.

    Yep, I'm coming up for the Saturday demo and staying until the Thursday/Friday.

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    I'm doing Saturday, but can't make next week. At least 130 University of Manchester and Man Met students tootling along.

    :D
     
  9. golightly

    golightly I've been gentrified. - :(

    Same here. I'm drumming up support from people at work to attend.
     
  10. I really want to go to the march but I already promised to go to Wales to watch my husband's ten year old nephew play for England Under 11's.:(

    However I expect there will be many marching and protesting opportunities this spring and summer, so good luck everyone for the start of the season.
     
  11. free spirit

    free spirit more tea vicar?

    I'm contemplating it, but it's likely mean quitting this temp job I'm doing 2 weeks early, with no other work lined up in the near future and lots of money owed out that doesn't seem like a terribly sensible thing to do.... :hmm:


    so that's a maybe then;)
     
  12. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    This is more than a good reason to not go imo, you can be cool Auntie Badger Kitten who gets tickets to Englands World Cup in 2018 and beyond when the nephew captains the side :cool:

    Goatherd meritocracy lol

    The ONE day of the year when I have commitments I can't get out of. :mad:

    I'm not going as, even if I wanted to spend a few days in lock-up, I'd be aligning myself with quite a few "protestors" who see violence and criminal damage as legitimate outlets for their frustration.

    And what's being protested? Globalisation, capitalism itself, international summits, useless freeloading politicians, or all of it?

    Anyhow, good luck to any peaceful protestors.

    I'm going to the march on Saturday. Looking forward to it, even though our coach is leaving at the crack of dawn.
     
  26. dylans

    dylans overlord of all acorns

    Decided not to go cus i have a kid and i can't leave him at home. There is a real risk if confrontation on this one and its not fair to subject him to that risk.
    But good luck to everyone there. I hope it makes history.

    In Bloom Joyless and full of hate

    I have to work, but I probably wouldn't bother even if I didn't. What's the big deal about the G20 anyway? Does anybody really believe that the protests stand even the tiniest chance of effecting the summit or the delegates in any way whatsoever?
