Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

What is she wearing? There appears to be a tank inside the pack on her back, which has a hose coming out of the bottom, and terminating in a nozzle/gun which can be seen near her left hand.
There were two of these units spotted lurking behind the thick blue line at the APEC protests.
Water? OJ? Beer? Capsicum spray?

I survived the APEC protest march...
Some facts from this observer: Except for a few violent lunatics who always turn up at events like this, the march was entirely peaceful. I estimated the crowd to be about 10,000 strong. The police were over the top in a couple of their reactions and they were generally trying to be intimidating.
I want to acknowledge the organisers for the great lengths they went to in urging the crowd to remain peaceful and to not retaliate to any acts of provocation by police or other provocateurs. And it worked. As I said above, it was a peaceful protest march.
I went up to one officer in the thick blue line, who was doing a sad job of trying to look intimidating, stuck my face REAL close to his, and gave him my best sergeant's intonation when I said to him (whilst boring into his eyes with mine) "When this country turns into a fascist state, remember the part you played here today, laddie!!!"
The day was good for my adrenalin addiction.
