The protest downtown actually took place yesterday. A friend said that despite the SWAT team's arrival, only a few people were hurt and not very seriously. A student catching a cab said the driver had offered her a free ride if she was going to the protest.

When writing on the Internet is likely to be blocked for political reasons, some authors use characters that are written differently from but pronounced the same as those to be filtered. As an example, for a long time, the Bear tells me, the character for "to fuck" existed only in handwriting and wasn't available on any computer. People had to use 操 instead, which is pronounced the same, /cào/.
