    that much of what happened was staged.  Unfortunately, this is a tactic that is being employed with increasing regularity by the Right.  Our folks need to be smarter than this--turn your backs to the "counter-protesters" and pretend that they don't even exist.  As long as we continue to engage, they will continue to pull shit like this to portray us as aggressive, violent thugs.

      with workers and less on criticizing one or two things that we don't agree with in regards to their actions.  This sort of thing is nothing new, attacks on unions for being violent has a tradition as long as the labor movement here in the US.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
