    ... where did they get the eggs? Do they normally carry around eggs in case they need to hurl them about?

    Readily available nearly everywhere... could have gotten them at a nearby traditional market... and throwing eggs in this part of the world is like throwing shoes in Iraq...

    The reverse is also true.

    Fire rages through a building in Tottenham, north London on Aug. 7, 2011. A demonstration against the death of a local man turned violent and cars and shops were set ablaze.

    Fiery wooden planks that were used as spears against police.


    Like I said my choice is to have my eggs cooked not thrown.

    I'm sorry you or others might have such an issue. As the son of immigrants, I've been around "foreigners" all my life.

    The USA has a long history of internal repression and violence.

    Well, on the other hand, as the "son of immigrants" myself, I don't make idiotic statements about how I want Canada's gas prices to be driven up because Canadians didn't like the idea of the Iraq War.

    Your point??? or did I hit a nerve? As I stated "no one country is without their occurrences."

    Here is something to think about: "Wherever Britain tried to plant its flag, there was resistance. From Ireland to India, from the American colonies to Australia, Gott chronicles the backlash. He shows, too, how Britain provided a blueprint for the genocides of twentieth-century Europe, and argues that its past leaders must rank alongside the dictators of the twentieth century as the perpetrators of crimes against humanity on an infamous scale. In tracing this history of resistance, all but lost to modern memory, Richard Gott recovers these forgotten peoples and puts them where they deserve to be: at the heart of the story of Britain’s empire." (see Britain's Empire: Resistance, Repression and Revolt by Richard Gott)
