The first insult is getting a permit to march. We don't need a permit to march. Freedom of assembly. Period. The cops can't stop 5,000 people from taking the streets. Next year we should not apply for a permit. They're our streets. And it's May Day goddamn-it! Not a Liberal Parade Day!
But, since the organizers did get a permit, why did the idiot Orange Vests hold us up, thus dividing the march, at Red lights? Is it in the permit that we have to stop at all red lights? If so, what's the fucking point of getting a permit? And what's with these over eager morons doing the police's work for them? The point of march security should be to protect the march from the police, not act like cops. I saw three or four of these people link arms and block a sidewalk to keep people in the streets! They were actually telling people to keep off the sidewalks. One genius told me we had a permit for the streets, not the sidewalk. Incredible! These idiots actually formed lines at Red Lights, linking arms, stopping the march from going forward because the light was no longer Green. Some opposition. A real stance. The powers-that-be are shaking in their boots! Orange Vests Equals Cops. Same Fuckin' Thing! We Don't Need Them Next Year! Go patrol somewhere else. Morons!
