  •  The riots in Greece and Egypt (0+ / 0-)

    were in no way small. Not at all.

    First Nations peoples burned 5(or 6) cop cars protesting a carbon extraction scheme. That's news.

    Really though, it will get covered once enough noise gets made on social networks and blogs and such. I'm not going to argue about the reason it isn't being covered because hopefully this coverage will get it more attention.

    Hell it seems to be all over Canadian news with at least 3 different website reports and that alone should put the idea to rest.
    I have no clue what sites are big in Canada so I couldn't say if that's any sort of real coverage. But I'd imagine that 6 burnt cop cars at a protest would be news anywhere in the US, so I assume it's news in the US.

    To sum up, yes, this is different than Greece and Egypt, and it's also smaller. It may get coverage if we keep up the noise making about it and if they keep up the protesting.
