G8 protests

I live in Edinburgh, and have been basically confiined to near my house for a week due to the rioting and such attendant on the G8 protests. And I honestly don't believe it's doing any good whatsoever. Hell, the G8 aren't even meeting here.

People coming thousands of miles to protest... It just seems there's better uses for that week of their time: Help reconstruct Afghanistan. Dig wells in Africa. Raise money for charities. Give the money you'd spend to a homeless shelter. It'd probably do far more good as a whole than spending thousands of pounds just to fly out here and cause trouble.
