Protestcam casts eyes over Washington anti-capitalist demo
If you were horrified at the images of baton-wielding police kicking the living daylights out of anti-capitalism protestors in Washington, DC over the weekend, then you'd better give ProtestCam.com a miss. Activists have two cameras overlooking the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund buildings in Washington, DC providing a snapshot of events on the ground. Thankfully, they're too far away to show any real detail and protestors would have to storm the precincts immediately around the building to get in the frame. And after watching the scenes on TV at the weekend, it's unlikely that the well-tooled and heavily armoured thick blue line would stand for such nonsense. That said, it's well worth looking at the site just to see that spring has arrived along the tree-lined Pennsylvania Avenue. Interestingly, ProtestCam.com is hosted by the Guest Choice Network - a coalition of more than 30,000 restaurant and tavern operators working together to protect the public's right to a full menu of dining choices through "education, training and public outreach". Bet DC's eateries are doing a storming trade in lentil stew and tofu burgers. ®
