I'm not sure if this deserves it's own thread, if it doesn't I'm sure a mod will happily delete it

Anyhoo, to the point. Has anyone here ever been to a protest?

I'm planning on going to the protest against ACTA on Saturday and I'm a bit, for lack of a better word, nervous.

If you have been to a protest, what was it like? What did you do? Is there anything I should prepare for?

Thanks for taking the time

Why not?

I'm sure you'll find it's much less organized than you think.


It does seem to be loosely organised, though maybe sometimes that's a good thing?

Because I no longer support the cause. It has loads of loopholes in it. For example, supporting it can have a direct influence on your life span.

Not sure how much different it is in Europe, but you should expect to be beaten up, pepper sprayed, people who want to act like jackasses and wreck shit, and college age stoners that don't even know why they're there. Have fun.

I put a ton of my capital into SW Airlines... The next day, THE NEXT DAY these nutters fly into the WTC. What the hell? Apparently no one wanted to fly anymore, and I was like "What gives? God damnit Osama, let me win a fuggin' game!"

This. You might be there for legitimate reasons, but when someone flips a car you'll all get tased and tear gassed.

Several, yeah. I'd recommend going with a friend, as shit can be dull.


I'm gonna convince some mates to come with me I think.

As for the cops thing, I can't see there being much bother, and *fingers crossed* the police here are nicer than that.

To be fair, you live in Syria. Most governments don't fire live ammo at their own citizens on a regular basis.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

Once I was standing in line at Taco Bell, and this old hag at the front of the line was taking forever counting change, so me and the other characters in line partook in a silent and peaceful protest against old ladies at Taco Bell.
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

A few, mainly Hydro-fracking protests and a few occupy protests including Wall St. They're cool I guess, people are usually nice and well-informed. You're gonna have to deal with some over-zealous anarchist dickheads though, they find their way into every rally.
