I am sad that I missed the protest today. Looking through all the photos made me feel so proud of the today's youth. It also made me feel very nostalgic of the 2nd protest I went to, way back in 2001.
It was one of the biggest anti-globalization protests of all time. The first time I saw robo-cops, armored police vehicles and had my first taste of tear gas. It was such a beautiful experience that forever changed my life.
My parents begged me not to go and my partner at the time said if I went he was going to break up with me.
I imagine just imagine the kids today feeling what I felt what I was feeling at 19, (albeit wayyyyyy more peaceful). The kids are alright!
