Its a good list of real world reference. This story is an eye opener to the reader, and i love the way you present it in the most  gorgeous way possible for a web comic. I understand and agreed about the ideas about the protest and the hacks, the violence and destruction that follows, yet i have no skill to present it to the world like you are. So yeah, this kind of Story is what i really want to see. And you've done it very great!!
 Cheers, can't wait to see the ">>> Next (tbc)" button become ">>> Next"
:cheers:

Oh my gosh...I never knew things like this happen... I live in Australia and so we never hear of these things. All this propaganda and political injustice is maddening. So many people killed and injured no matter what they do...
It is a brilliant idea to base your comic on these things and my friends and I have been loving your work! :)

Hey I live in Australia too and this kind of stuff happens of here too. All the mass media is owned by a handful of capitalist conservatives who keep a pretty tight reign on what they deem we are "allowed" to see and our corrupt politicians let it happen because they are racking in the profits too. As for propaganda merely look to the front page of the Courier Mail or The Australia and see the racist filth they spew as headlines. Political injustice? Tony Abbott is our Prime Minister... that is unjust all on its own, without evening bringing up the education and welfare cuts, the destruction of the environment for a profit we as the workers and taxpayers never see, the rampant tax evasion from the rich through loop holes that the government refuses to fix (So Gina Rinehart and Rupert Murdoch contribute less to society via tax than their secretaries; who is being payed a tiny margin of what the rich pay anyway) and finally our 'leader' (which I use in the broadest terms possible) is throwing away millions of tax payers money to fight a war in a country still so desolated from our last interference to supposedly 'stop terrorists' (though, sickeningly, we won't let those fleeing from these countries because of war find refuge in our own)  but won't send humanitarian aid to the hundreds of thousands of innocent people dying from Ebola. If you want to see political injustice, my friend, merely look around your own country... our fight is here just as much as it is across the globe and it is only when we are united as one we can stand to free all of humanity from poverty, injustice and violence and most of all fight for our freedom.

Wow... sorry haha got a little carried away there....

SORRY FOR THE RANT...

ranting is all fine by me! it was inspirational anyways. my family don't watch the news anymore because of all this stuff so I've been living under a rock for a while... well, after that i don't think it matters where we are, there's always something wrong. I'm an optimist so i try my hardest to be happy with what we've got. a song that would do well right now would be Where is the Love? by The Black Eyed Peas. Others should definitely hear what you have to say- your words hold a lot of worth. :)

Thank you :) even if by me ranting at you and you've read it you are doing a lot better than 90% of the world who just don't even think at all. So right on for thinking!! :D

And remember political apathy is the death of democracy.

i would like to say that in spain there was a similar situation where hundreds of students were beaten by the police. The policemen didn't wear the badge with their licence number, wich means you could not bring suit against them. The police men went to the hospitals to scare the dostors and they tried to stop them from writing the reports of the injuries. Spain  is supposed to be a democracy, but it really felt like some kind of dictature.
