All darkness and blackness and snow and riot police silhouetted by fires. Water cannon shooting icy water. People running in every direction. Confusion.
I have just come back. The police are all over the city. Everyone is antsy. Mounted police and sheriffs are all over the place. I bought a newspaper to study the want ads because the cyber ads are zip. But the front pages claims all sorts of things happening last night. Everyone is trying to sell different versions to control the story line and therefore the agenda. But everything is happening too fast for PR to spin or advertising to package. No one seems to really know what happened at all! Who fired first? The Google pics are very dramatic . All darkness and blackness and snow and riot police silhouetted by fires. Water cannon shooting icy water. People running in every direction. Confusion. Black silhouette of protestors throwing things. The reporters say rocks. But up to last night they were only lobbing eggs and snow balls. Pleeese! Eggs and snow balls are not lethal! Potato grenades? Pleeese! All of the Youtube and web cyber papers show are confusing pics from iphones and ipods. But they show riot police attacking. Not the other way around. But everything is so confusing! The twitters say everything happened. Anarchists fire bombing Old Gildagad House. Anarchists fire bombing riot police. Police using rubber bullets and shooting at protestors. Tear gas set on fire causing the damage of Old Gildagad House. Rocks being lobbed. They can’t even say who was hurt —- other than protestors. I think I will check out more Youtube videos and web pics. People were there. Someone has to know what happened. Nowadays everyone has ipods and iphones. This is not like the bad old days when dictators could control the flow and packaging of information and spin any spin they wanted. Someone has to know what happened.
