Murdered protestors line the streets of Syria, Egypt mourns the thousands of death of pro democracy activists, Libya remains gridlocked in a bloody civil war. These people were (peacefully) protesting for something real, for change, for fairness freedom and political liberty. Their governments responded with murderous socio-cide,slaughtering the protestors seeking change from decades of political oppression, torture, poverty, and government murder. Meanwhile, in England, a cloudy case of a police killing, the circumstances and motive of which remain uncovered, has sparked unprecedented rioting. Tottenham burns, Enfield cowers, and the nation watches. These rioters have no goal, no guidance, or objective. What was allegedly a protest (perfectly understandable) against potential police murder has rapidly descended into destruction and looting. London’s burning, and we’re running out of water.
