You don't need us to tell you about the violent protests outside the WTO venue this evening in HK -- predictably, the MSM is all over it.
However, what they might not have told you is that people from the inside, accredited NGOs from a German group called "BUND", as well as others, used the riots to try and generate publicity, i.e. as Thomas Sowell put it: They are feeding their own egos by hindering poor Africans from feeding themselves.
Now that is bad enough, in and of itself -- but what really got me boiling was that these people wantonly obstructed police in the execution of their duties. As a result, the police were prevented from stopping the protestors from getting too close to the convention centre for safety.
I will be reporting these people both to the police and to the WTO Secretariat as the individual concerned, as well as their respective groups, should NEVER be allowed access to any WTO event again, ever.
