How so?  If you are a Stalinist, it would clearly be the former.  If not, it would clearly be the latter.

Can't You see that this very posture of yours was what transformed something that should emancipate workers into something that oppressed them even more?

not so simple - a NATO-bound East Germany would have been both a symbolic and strategic disaster.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

"Supporting the protesters" would require the protests to have had definable recognized aims, which was not the case.
Joining the protests. That's something else. That's something I presumably would have done.
