No more quiet protests, vigils and demonstrations. When we start organizing and building a large movement that is worth something, that has long term goals and people who are willing to escalate it and escalate over time until these goals are achieved, for a cause that will actually have positive impact on our society... then im done with this crap that doesn't matter. Yes, I am angry and frustrated. I have plenty of patients, to last me a lifetime... but I will not allow those who use the excuse of being patient as a cop-out.
There are much more important things to be spending our time and energy on. I hope that someday soon everyone will recognize this. We need to be uniting people. We need to get the African-American community, the Hispanic community, the Indian community and everyone in between ... we need to unite those separated by race and class. We need to build a movement that shuts down the war, that shuts down corporate slave-shops, child labor and genocide. We need to build a movement that sets out to shut down the prison-industrial-complex. A movement that fights for national health care.
The protests we hold now are, not to portray them as meaningless.... but have little effect. Now if we were holding large protests every weekend, and I mean large ones, or every single day... and we shut down the streets, block business, and dont succumb to the police state... then maybe the protests would get somewhere. The ones that get a little crazy, we have people on our own side turning us in to cops. We need unity and commitment. Most of the protests consist of middle-class white Americans. I fall under this category myself. But we need our black brothers & sisters, our brown brothers & sisters, our yellow and red brothers & sisters.
Learn the history of the movements taking place in Greece, Brazil, Mexico, France and all around the world. They take over their universities. They take over their streets. They stay defiant until the end, and at least they make some results, some progress... even if they havent one yet. We dont make sh*t for ground here. It disgusts me and makes me sad. Our government is raping us yet we stay good Americans and play the game.
No more. We need a new movement. A movement of all races and classes. Of all religious backgrounds. Of all the political groups and organizations united as on, who support each other despite their petty differences. A movement that will grow and build, decade after decade if it takes that long. A movement that wont back down and wont say no.
That is the kind of movement we need. If anyone is ready to start this kind of a movement then please, let me know. I'm afraid I lack experience in organizing, but I have passion. I have heart. I have real hope. A real hope that we really can create a better world. If there are those of you who would like to do this, I am here, as I am sure many others are too. I will dedicate my life to the movement.
Lets do this, for we cannot afford not to. For our sake, for America's sake... for the worlds sake.
