Response to scarletwoman (Reply #2)

6. Thanks.

I read an article earlier this week, about a woman who was protesting against hydrofracking. Although all of her actions were nonviolent, she was sentenced to a year in jail. She is a close associate of some of the people that I coordinate with.

No one in their right mind wants to sign up for a year in jail. But she accepts it for exactly what it is.

There were more people willing to do that in the 1980s. And not because jail was more fun at that time. I think that we will reach that point again in the near future.
