I stayed home and watched the events on TV. They did a pretty good job of not playing favorites and just showing what was going down.
One thing that really subtracted from the real protestor's efforts was the appearance on tv, not of protesting, but of rowdy partying on the streets.
I have been hearing a lot of comments that the protest looked more like Portland Goes Wild On Spring Break, than it did like a political statement.
I am a veteran of the Civil Rights and Vietnam protests and know that what worked then was a seriousness of cause.
It is important, if you seriously want to stop the horrors, to appear serious on tv and NOT look like a bunch of high school stoner idiots. We need to be respected by the masses we want to win over, not laughed at.
