More protests

Anti-war protests are continuing worldwide, though at this stage there seems to be little point other than to vent anger at the US (and boy, is there a lot of it to vent). BBC has reports from Africa, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and from Britain, where it seems they are still causing some disruption. According to Salon, The "Arab street" has exploded; a report I read earlier today said that two people were shot in Yemen when a crowd tried to storm the US embassy there. They also have a report on yesterday's "Anarchy" in the streets of San Francisco.

No word yet on today's planned protests in Wellington and Auckland. Will they be larger or smaller than those of a few weeks ago?
