First day of Olympics marred by violence

First day of Olympics marred by violence

Conflict coloured the first day of Olympic competition on Saturday after a protest rally erupted into violence in downtown Vancouver, spurring a lengthy showdown between participants and police.

More than 100 protesters, many believed to be anarchists clad in all-black attire with bandanas over their faces, spray painted cars and threw newspaper boxes into windows near the intersection of Granville and Georgia Streets shortly before 10 a.m.

What are they doing? why are they causing trouble? I don't understand. The Olympic games is already here, just let it be, no need to be violent.

Those people were just causing trouble rather than protesting. That was just an excuses for acting violent. They could do it peacefully.
Face the fact, the Olympic game is already started. Nothing can change.
