APEC Protest

August 21st, 2007 at 09:53am

Good morning Lawsie,

Well you're an awful lot more patient with Alex, the organiser of the APEC protester, than I am.

I found his answer to your question about taking responsibility if the protest turns violent to be very interesting. Based on his logic, Earth getting two degrees hotter in the coming years as a result of climate change is a hypothetical thing which hasn't happened yet, and therefore nobody can take responsibility for it. I'm sure he would love to blame the current government for climate change, and yet he refuses to give you a straight answer about the protest.

Alex, you can't have it both ways.

    Everyone has a right to protest Samuel.

    Did this fellow actually mention climate change?

    I hope the protest doesn’t turn violent. Protesters will always come off second best, and that doesn’t help the cause at all.

    If it wasn’t for protests Samuel we would be like in the film Metropolis with all the rich above ground and all the poorly treated workers underground keeping the city going.
    That is a classic film Samuel, check it out, for a silent movie it still packs a punch.

    In Metropolis though, doesn’t Freder get Maria in the end?

    I’ll assume thats a “no” then.
