Some news on the antiwar protests. The Auckland and Wellington ones were on the news last night, and looked peaceful enough. But it looks like things have gone rather differently in other parts of the world. BBC is reporting over a thousand arrests in San Francisco, and Scoop is carrying photos of a protest in Geneva where schoolchildren were teargassed and reportedly one was shot and killed. There's not much about how things are going in England, but from the article in the Guardian and the report on the front page of IndyMedia UK, protests have resulted in widespread disruption.

There's also a series of worldwide protests scheduled for saturday. I wonder how they'll go?
