Let's start a riot! A rriiiiooot!

Forget about Palestine and their bid for independence! What is an international crisis compared to stuff happening at your doorstep? Well, not much really. So yeah - we are having riots. A gipsy "king" acting like a feudal lord, a murder that was either by his order or with his approval and next thing you know, there is a lynching mob outside his mansion, hooligans from all the major teams unite(no kidding) for this and soon enough molotov cocktails are flying. There are some good indications when one should just go home, lock the door and play WoW or something like that all night. Now there are flash mob protests all over the country. Not too big, several thousands strong each, but I can't remember the last time a political party managed to gather as many in one place, let alone that many in total. Riot cops are everywhere, beating them up and arresting some. How lovely.

What does a riot change ? You have seen in London it changes nothing. Society evolves slower than we want it too. Demonstrations sound better than riots.

@Mo, well it started as demonstrations, turned into riots. Problem, is, I think the fine gentlemen in charge never cared about demonstrations. But riots make them sweat. I heard the army reservists got a readiness call.

Wow, never knew riots could get out of control so much.
