So, is it completely fucking hopeless then?

frank zapatista | So, lets get a rundown of the anti-war events this weekend:

* A fairly small protest in DC is upstaged in the media by facistic counter-protesters.
* A few hundred are arrested there for no reason.

Does anyone else feel completely hopeless? more...  11 Comments
