Marching on the RNC is all very well and good; but for gosh sakes, DO NOT USE ANY VIOLENT TACTICS -- and that INCLUDES the destruction of property! Oh, wouldn't the Repukelicans just LOOOOOOOOVE that!!!!!

Those who will ADVOCATE for the destruction of property, saying that it "isn't really violence, 'cause it doesn't hurt people", and, "well, breaking a window or two is nothing compared to the violence that Republicans and Banksters do in foreclosing on people, etc.";
these are going to be EITHER AGENTS PROVOCATEURS, or the DUPES of Agents Provocateurs, egged on by them, even if they are totally unaware that this is the case.

The Repukes WANT VIOLENCE -- and NOBODY ELSE DOES. The violence CAUSED BY THE AGENTS PROVOCATEURS or their COWARDLY DUPES, makes the Public perceive that it is okay for the Police to "crack down" and beat up on ALL Protestors -- not just the "violent" ones! {In fact, the Police Agents slink back into the crowds and are almost NEVER arrested; or, if they are, they are put thru the motions and then let go with a wink and a pat on the back! Unlike the REAL Protestors.....}

The COWARDLY AGENTS PROVOCATEURS AND THEIR MINDLESS DUPES make things DANGEROUS for everyone else, all the GREAT MAJORITY of Non-violent Protestors -- whom they hide behind, using them as Human Shields.
The Repukes want the Public to think that ALL the Protestors are Violent, mindless Idiots -- this in order to SCARE people away from the Movement for Peace and Justice.

Fortunately, there are steps being taken to get rid of the would-be violent fake "protestors" before {and during} the RNC march. There are some Big Guys employed as Peacekeepers..... who use non-violent methods, of COURSE!

The groups engaged in the March on the RNC, need to make a CLEAR AND UNEQUIVOCAL STATEMENT, that theirs is to be a NON-VIOLENT march, and that they will NOT CONDONE violent tactics of ANY sort. {Including "destruction of property", i.e., window-breaking.}
This will help to ISOLATE the would-be Agents Provocateurs {whether from the local Police, the FBI, the CIA, "Homeland Security", or whatever their origins and whatever they call themselves.....}.

ALL THE OCCUPY GROUPS need to do this, also. Agents Provocateurs DEFINITELY EXIST in ALL Occupy groups of any size in all large cities. The Agents Provocateurs egg on teenagers who want to appear "macho" in the eyes of their contemporaries, and other mis-guided people, to commit acts of violence that then, unfortunately, become identified with the Occupy Movement as a whole.
SOME OCCUPY GROUPS, have come out with Statements of Non-violence: that the violent people ARE NOT CARRYING OUT OCCUPY PRECEPTS.
Unfortunately, not all Occupy groups have done this. THEY NEED TO. ALL Occupy groups should make official Statements that their tactics will be NON-VIOLENT. That does NOT mean, "passive and non-confrontational". They need to come up with a definition of non-violence that will eliminate the Provocateurs and their unfortunate, mis-led puppets.

According to the article, "On Monday, August 27, 2012, the attention of the entire world will be focused on Tampa, Florida. The Republican National Convention brings together some of the worst politicians that this country has to offer. We're calling on all those ready to fight back against the attacks launched by the Republican Party and their corporate masters to take to the streets and demand a better future for our families, our communities and our children."

No complaints from me! I hope the protest not only gets the attention it deserves, but enlightens those who are indifferent or uninformed.
