On the eve of International Guy Fawkes' Night, darkness descends as protests arise...
Protest is required if you are oppressed.
Protest is required if you are distressed.
Protest is required if you would profess to know the truth of the dire circumstances within which we are all bound together, for better or worse.
But we plead with you for peaceful protest.
The use of violence against property or people invites worse oppression. Our governments profit by our violence because they are the supreme violators; when we use violence in response we give them a statement that we approve their use of violence.
Alas, violence causes undue harm to many who may be inculpable of the acts we protest.
No one deserves to be harmed regardless of their culpability in any manner of harm to the public, to private people, to personal enterprises, or to corporate entities, to their governments, or to their religions...
Please let no harm be done in the name of truth, justice, equality, or freedom.
You deserve to know the truth, to champion its causes, but before you can know the truth you must be free to investigate matters for yourselves.
Violence is a prison that leads to more violence.
Let us protest in peace this night.
love, the grigs...
Thank you Margarida.
