As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Should pupils be allowed to demontrstrate?
Umm... yes, I think so. In the best case, the teachers would be with them and so have their duty done, too. We can't on the one hand lament about the new generation which doesn't show any interest in anything else than themselves and computers, when we kick pupils who try to articulate their opinion in political meanings like Ananova reports here. I have no idea how it is in other countries but here in germany we have a decrease in youg people accessing group-event, if political party, if scouts or Falcons or even sport-groups. Our kids individualize more and more (at least that's what the studies say) and if they do something together like demonstrating we are thinking of not allowing it?
When I was at school (in the 80ies), peace-demonstrations were absolutely a must. I went there instead of school, too and some of my teachers were with me. Okay - many others weren't and send me notes home, but at the end it was tolerated because I could stand for my things and fight for my point there. Normally, peace-demonstrations are peaceful and nothing happens as long as all parts play by the rules.
The last Peace-demonstration I was, is a few weeks ago, when we built a peace-sign from people in the city of cologne (my hometown). It was wondergirls first one. I fear she won't remember it really, we'll go to another one when she'll be older.
