Protests

A lot of protests are going off around the world, what's your views on them? Do you like them? Do you agree? Do you believe violence won't solve anything?

 

Talk :mrgreen:

 

 

"Do you like them?" erm.... Yes of course I do as many of you know i do like a good old argument of getting my point across which is why I am in full support of the protests in the middle east especially the one in Cairo (I'll go into further details in a min!)

 

However, I don't support the student protests that have been happening around the UK recently. This protest has all been caused by the new government gaining power (also which many of you know I don't really like!) and the cuts that are being made because a certain party lead by the 'Iron Lady' in the late :)'s/90's caused many problems because she simply didn't like working class people so decided to take away all their jobs. Eventually when people opened there eyes and realised what they'd done by voting in this party so instead chose (the completely useless) Tony Blair and the Labour party to take over.

 

After 13 years under rule by them, the country found it's self in a better state as they managed to sort out the problems the Conservative's gave us (but then made an even bigger cock-up of the situation thus leaving us bankrupt and in war with Iraq and Afghanistan). As there was (is) no money then the students have a problem of not being able to study because of the governments' decision making skills (or lack of!).

 

Of course the students have the right to vote (as has everybody else in the UK) however I feel that there is a right and a wrong way to protest (and this can be used in just about any type of protest) and the right way to protest in the students' case would be to boycott the university's so that they have to take control of the situation and let the students talk. However I feel that by kicking the sh1t out of central London and also throwing fire-extinguishers off of buildings at cops isn't really the best way to get your point across is it? (However I may just have had to give that lad £100 if it hit that cop out of pure entertainment!)

 

Anyway back to the middle ease and especially Egypt, I've been going to this country all my life and infact was nearly born there. My mum has been going there and is insisting or retiring over there and my great granddad lived and eventually died out there in WW1. This country has suffered greatly since Hussni Mubarak took over the head of the country nearly 31 years ago. Before he came to power he was the head of the army and he basically did whatever he wanted to do and treated the Egyptians like sh1t. Just to prove how much a 'fantastic' leader he is, this is the man who stole £56 BILLION (yes, billion!) over 30 years and is now on the run with some of his money.

 

The Egyptians did what they had to do to gain freedom and I support everything that they did (except steeling some stuff from the Egyptian Museum.....not the cleverest thing they've ever done!).

well i am completely for it, we was talking about it in legal studies today, and thing is that the leader of libya is murdering people everyday if they don't believe in his views, anything that goes against the views of the leader over there are subject to death, the thing that started all this was in an African Country, a fruit tender had his fruit confiscated from him by police because he didn't have his correct license, and in protest he lit himself on fire.

There are many, many countries in the world which are like that I'm afraid. That's dictatorship for you. Communism is still around too. I'm all for the people uprising against dictatorships, though the huge media presence, which is due to swarm around situations like this aren't making it any better.
