    How does Seattle protest on behalf of the working man and unions? Throw garbage cans all over the street so sanitation workers have to go around cleaning all that shit up tomorrow.

    Isn't this kind of a tradition in Seattle or am I thinking of another city?

    Still find it ironic that "anarchists" constantly demand more government.

    They're getting the disenfranchised workers some overtime pay, maaaaaannnnnnnn!

    I remember there being a WTO protest that ended with rioting several years back (1999, maybe?).

    Yeah, they like a good protest riot here. To be shortly followed by complaints that the police were too brutal while containing the violence...while the other half of the population say the police didn't do enough to prevent the violence.

    They just want an excuse to protest something so that they an pretend that they're part of a movement and part of something greater than their own boring lives.

    I'm with you. This is why I dislike when people apply some sort of political or any sort of philosophy to these types of things. They might wave the "banner," but they have no idea what it means. They're just angry, impotent dicks without any other outlets. They rail against capitalism because it's dominant, not because they're communists/socialists.

    The rank and file rock throwers might not "identify" as communist, but the people organizing these things absolutely do. You don't just make red banners because you like the color.
