Trigger Happy on the Water Cannons25 Mar 2003
Yesterday was the first day of school in Hamburg after spring vacation, but 20,000 students decided to skip class and protest the war. The march attempted to reach the gates of the US Consulate, and things got ugly. The consulate was off the approved route, and some rouge protesters did throw stones at police. But does the get-tough stance of Interior Senator 'Judge Merciless' Schill really call for water cannons and bobby sticks to be used on 7th and 8th graders?
