THIS IS COOL:
IT WAS shoulder to shoulder yesterday in downtown Bogotá and in more than 140 cities around the world as millions of Colombians gathered to call for an end to the violence by Marxist rebels in demonstrations organised on the internet social networking site Facebook. . . .
The unprecedented worldwide protests were hatched a month ago when a group of young Colombians met via Facebook and decided a voice must be given to the millions who reject the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc) and its 44-year-old war to overthrow the state.
It's like, I don't know, some sort of self-organizing army of protesters. Somebody should write a book about this kind of thing!
