    As I said, the media will not give this the coverage it warrants no matter what. It's still good advice though, use the limited media attention you get to your fullest advantage. And don't give them any ammunition to dismiss this as just a fringe event, because they will be more than happy to do that.

      You've agreed that they're going to refuse to cover it no matter how the protestors behave.

      You then claim that the protestors should behave in a way that appeals to an elderly middle-class element of society that isn't receptive to their message, that they should alienate and exclude young radicals while demanding that their fellow protestors alter both their behavior and their message...

      so that the corporate owned media (which will continue to ignore them) will have less legitimate ground to ignore them?

      How the hell is this an effective strategy?
