actually, i should probably ask if anyone here knows what to expect. I live really close to the closed off area (although i am not in it exactly). anyways, from what i've quickly skimmed through it sounds like 3 days will really be affected, but i'd like to know what we're up against.

If anyone is familiar with these conferences and their effects on cities please share your knowledge.

England allows protesters on the streets a lot though, you see at least 4 a week
I didn't think Canada had the same amount

Anarchists from all countires it seems.... they just fly in to cause shit and then leave once it's over. Like World Cup hoodlums minus the soccer game lol.

Some of my buddies are police officers and they mentioned that EVERY cop in the city will be working that week... in full uniform. No exceptions. Yikes.

it's a mixed bag. there are a lot of very interesting and very thoughtful people that get lumped in with the more extreme anarchists, and there are lots of shades of grey in between.

there are academics and writers, photographers, bloggers, professional protesters (yes, it's ironic, i get that), disaffected youth, concerned trade unionists, and straight up anarchists. there are all shades of the left wing, and several shades of the right. people are protesting all kinds of different things, and saying it in all kinds of different ways. a lot of it is valuable, but all of that gets lost because the media just lumps everyone together as a group of violent nonsense-filled anarchists.
