  1. Some of these protests are shameful, and shows how ignorant the demonstraters are how do you really fight what is not wrong you should first research or inquire from the informed .
    It just shows how shallow some politicians can be how do you really spend time doing what you know is wrong and at the end of the day everyone will be laughing at you .
