German police are using water cannons against G-20 protesters. German protesters need to straighten that out fast since it has again become the norm there & will soon be the norm elsewhere–like in Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa, against the US civil rights movement, & Kashmir under occupation. Water cannons are assault weapons & their use must be met with maximum opposition by those who believe in the democratic right of protest.

So much for any lingering illusions about Angela Merkel.
