A GR8 Solution for the G-8

For the past decade, whenever the G-8 hold a meeting, no matter what city they choose, every conceivable protestor of every conceivable political stripe shows up to protest and, invariably, the protests degenerate into riots. To me, the solution is simplicity itself: someone ought to get out a copy of a world atlas and make a list of good-sized uninhabited islands more than twenty miles from shore. Even if a few protestors will get into boats, it is much easier to control a few dozen boats than a few dozen thousand indignant pedestrians.
