The days are getting longer and the weather is warmer and April showers are here. The idea of the long war is lost on most but that is what we are engaged in. We want a new system that treats everyone fair, they want a system that continues to privilege them. These are diametrically opposed ideas and will require a tough fight to change. Part of that battle will be the dog days of protest, the long days when just showing up and demonstrating that we are not going to accept the status quo are needed to push the agenda forward. If we want to live in a better world we are the ones that will create it and those that hold power will not give it up willingly.
