Why protest?

Boston DNC arrest

Why protest the RNC?

Imagine they pull an October Surprise.
Imagine they postpone the election.
Imagine they fix the election.
Imagine they take away your rights,
Your job, your home, your air,
Your health, your environment.
Imagine the unimaginable.
What are you going to do?
What recourse will you have?
Are you going to take to the streets?
Seek redress from your government?
Only to get beat down by militarized police?

A confrontation in NYC
Might bring that point home.
There is no will of the people,
Only the action of our governement.
What the people want doesn’t matter to them.
