My sister and her kids went to that demonstration yesterday, which was put down with tear gas and pellets. It could have been worse, the National Guard are a militarised police (like the carabinieri in Italy) and often trigger-happy. My sister got out in time, which was a relief. At age 60 she's not exactly an olympic athlete ready to run rings around the National Guard.
I just hope the whole thing doesn't end in a blood bath... but I cannot see a positive outcome. The division and the hatred run too deep. Hope I'm wrong.
