School Students Protest??? Questionable politically

Whilst students cutting class to demonstrate against racism and war in Australia is an act of defiance (particularly if they are junior students). Here in Palestine the schools bring them out in buses.

I stumbled upon a group of students from a girls school in Nablus protesting against the defaming of the prophet Mohammad by European newspapers. I think the students generally believed it and part of me thinks that it is no worse then when I was in year four and our teacher encouraged us to write letters to the French embassy about Nuclear testing. The only difference is that it is teaching them a mass action way of doing things rather then lobbying politicians through letter writing. Still I kind of think it takes away from the whole rebelling against the system thing.
