Don't trash the Starbucks, man. Order a latte.

Lockdown, Ottawa.
The barricades are up, streets are closed and some parts of the city are simply a no-go zone today as U.S. President George W. Bush arrives for a two-day visit to Canada.

Here's the blow-by-blow:
It took about an hour for the march to make it just 11 blocks. I'm not sure if that's is good or bad for a crowd of 12,000 to 15,000, according to Joe Cressy, spokesperson for the "No to Bush" campaign. So far, the march seems to have gone peacefully, with no arrests or vandalism. At the Starbucks, employees were busy peddling lattes. Office workers came out to watch the march during breaks and a bike courier blithely entered the crowd, grinning, hands free. “No problem,” he laughed. Now more speeches and drumming. The diversity of the crowd is impressive — in age, religion and culture. Some are staying until the 5 p.m. candlelight protest — the weather is still good and the sun shining. Others are heading off in search of Mr. Bush's next stop in Ottawa.


Developing... Riots. Gas masks. Arrests!
