10,000 Brave Protesters, Vicious Police 18.Mar.2015 19:34

Big Banks manage cordon off much of city. RT news coverage shows several persons whom police could isolate grabbed and then beaten mercilessly. Still, some brave and effective counter attacks. I remember coming up from Eugene for some spirited demonstrations, and hope to do so again when conditions ripen a bit.

article says nothing about burning a bank. in fact there are more cops in the photos than protesters.

alternative media has a duty to report accurately, not wishfully.

Well, yes. The bank skyscraper was guarded by 10,000 cops and razor wire. So a literal headline should perhaps read, "Outraged protesters burn police cars and whatever else they can get their hands at bank protest and in solidarity with Greece and poor working people all over Europe, and against the "quantitative easement", austerity for the poor, and other oligarch financial schemes floated by international corporate capital.

Another way you might look at it is this: if a troll posts sophomoric counter arguments all over the Portland Indymedia sight, I might say piss on his attempt to burn off other users. It doesn't mean I'm actually going to piss on him, or that other users will actually leave the sight.

My guess is you have probably never participated in the torching of a bank, or taken a slow motion look at the Zapruder film for that matter. Some of us in Eugene have done it more than once... that is look at the Zapruder film of course.
