Response to Downtown Hound (Reply #57)

Sun Jun 30, 2019, 02:07 PM

67. Wow that was cool, it's been awhile seeing that kind of protest

 

Makes me feel lonely. I used to be surrounded by that energy and that righteous fight and community. Best times of my life. I find modern activism with an emphasis on social media to be not quite as effective for me. I mostly know older activists who now have families and jobs. I miss chaining myself to stuff and daring the cops to "do your worst". Don't miss streetfighting, that's for sure. It was terrifying but necessary. Violence is always an option, we used to say. Thanks for talking, Downtown Hound.
