Recently, there were major protests held in every state capital city in Australia, outside each stock market. They even went outside of the Prime Ministers office, and burnt a replica of him. I am just wondering what exactly Globalization is about? I have some idea, like free trade, profit over people and the environment and so forth, however, I do not know exactly what it is about. I knew the protests were going to happen, but I was shocked to find that a seniour police officer was stabbed with a syringe. I also saw images of protesters trying to take bridles off the mounted police officers horses. Also, I heard that the protestors had one horse on the ground and were kicking it. This was on a popular talk-back radio program which only deals with facts. I really feel sad when I hear things like this. Seeing the face of the mounted officer seeing his horse/friend get punched, I can't help but feel sorry for all of this. I think as most people do, that only about half the amount of protestors actually know what they were protesting about. Being supposedly for the environment whilst being cruel to animals, seems to me the most vile and most hypocritical thing you could do and I am saying that as nice as is appropriate on this board. A MacDonalds resturaunt was also graffitied and vandalized. I think that next year, on May 1, ithe army should step in with rubber bullets and water cannons, and battons, because if in the protest people can not stick to the views to which they are protesting it then becomes rioting and vandalism. Did any of you people hear about this or have some more information about Globalization? Thanks Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
