G20: Frontline Reports

Let us take a small chronic break from the monotony of the whinging and whining we encounter on a daily basis and reflect a little on the G20, in particular the protests. Ctrl.Alt.Shift, the magazine and website of which I edit, had troops at various locations, representing to the max. Some of the reports that have come back are not only excellent examples of journalism from a younger demographic but a reminder of what it's all about - not blood shed that's for sure...
