Next time...

What were we waiting for???
I was so excited last night, i showed up just as we started marching. We had more support than Gush/Bore!
And then, a truck with the puppets, and the entrance for the busses. That was when we should have marched right into the debates. That was the pivotal moment in which we could have made the night.
They couldn't have stopped all of us, and we were afraid of the consequences. If you noticed the cops left us to our own devices until everything blew over, then it got nasty.
Unfortunately, the next debates will have been notified of how to control the crowd, make us comfy and then whip us into submission.
We have learned to... every protest is a lesson, sadly we are learning that it is easier to stay in the barricades and walk on the sidewalks.
Props to the people who showed up, and all who had such inspiring messages, and to the ones who risked it all.
Next time we should tear their door down.

There it is, folks

Seize the moment. That's what makes real change happen.
The weak at heart, the hopeless reformers, and the visionary challenged already wrote this one off months ago by saying a shutdown was A) impossible; B) divisive; C) anti-free speech (what free speech??); D) blaa, blaa, blaa...... and yet the opportunity to actually crash the debate presented itself anyway....and was not taken.
How many chances will we get before the boot of The Machine finally crushes ALL dissent?
