Strong opinions, weakly held

Anti-globalization riots in Germany

Der Spiegel has a slideshow of photos of the anti-globalization riots in Rostock, Germany. I look at the rioters and see a bunch of people looking for an excuse to throw rocks at the police. It’s a shame that their antics distract from and discredit (in the eyes of most) the causes that the peaceful protesters are marching for.

  1. Yes, but that has always been the character of these demos when they are held in Europe. There have been riots Gothenburg; riots in Genoa: they all come down to a bunch of young men who want to get it on with the cops. It’s a complicated business.
