This Saturday Openrigths Group OrgCon in London and the ISOC INET20 next month in Geneva both have a Women in Technology session. I hope to get some funds for Suy to make it to Geneva.

isn't hateful, but by your rasnonieg anyone can write whatever they want on Levon's page and they have to post it in the name of freedom of speech , no matter how vile.Problems with your rasnonieg in the post above:1. You don't give the protesters credit for 11 days of peaceful protests.2. Everything that happened according to you is the fault of Levon supporters.3. You operate on the assumption that everyone who protested is a Levon supporter (many do not support him but did protest for freedom against what the authorities did. The fact that Levon led the protests did not equate to every protester agreeing with him.)4. You operate on the assumption that everyone who blocked roads, set cars on fire, threw molotovs, killed people, etc. were the protesters and that they were at fault. Some people are just hoodlums and they use times of chaos like this to cause mayhem and destruction. There is a good chance at least some of this (who knows how much) was done by them and not protesters to begin with.5. One also has to consider the percentage of those at work who were actually government provocateurs. It's actually been admitted that the security agency had sent people to the Opera protests trying to encite people to revolution. When that failed they planted weapons at the scene which started this all off- and the discovery of those weapons is what has been reported 24 hours a day over and over on the government sponsored tv. With all these cases, do you really think that there was absolutely no people sent by the government causing mayhem that evening as well to have more to blame on the protesters? I am not saying all protesters are innocent of bad actions, but one must be objective when considering this very complicated situation and making it to be so black and white (aka all the protesters' fault) is a huge diservice to reality.
