G20 Summit not peaceful

The G8 has concluded its summit in Muskoka, Ont., Canada, and now it’s time for the G20 in downtown Toronto.  Thousands of young protesters have converged on downtown Toronto and have created some havoc.  Some of these protesters are masked and are not peaceful. They are thugs and are creating violence in an attempt to create headlines.  This is not a good image for protesters.  I think I prefer watching the World Cup.

Are these thugs really going to make an effective statement using violence, or would they make a bigger impact using peaceful expressions of protest?

  1. The impact of peaceful expression will depend on what they do for an attention grabber, but the violence turns me off.
