Thats what'll happen to the protest, too. We hear what they "did" (blocking a hiway), but not what they protested about.

Even if they tell us it will be a minor note.

Nobody is hiding why they protested...


“Today, our nonviolent direct action is meant to expose the reality that Boston is a city where white commuters and students use the city and leave, while Black and Brown communities are targeted by police, exploited, and displaced,” said Katie Seitz, one of the protesters, said in the statement.


It was simply a stupid move on their part and you are correct....nobody cares about the why because they could have gone another route...

Some will say, "Why be so disruptive? So extreme?"

I read a column today by Ronnie McBrayer that quoted Martin Luther King, Jr., and his Letter from the Birmingham Jail that reminded me why it is so important...to be extreme. Interrupt brunch, interrupt traffic, end the status quo.

Here is a small part of his column...


 MLK used his jail cell to take his detractors to task, specifically a group of Alabama ministers, who had taken umbrage with his tactics.

Those ministers crafted a document entitled, “A Call for Unity,” imploring King to cease his “extreme measures” of boycotts and demonstrations. After it was printed in the local newspaper, King drafted “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” as his spirited response.

In it he fiercely attacked the false peace that they paternalistically peddled. What was required for lasting peace and justice was to first “bring to the surface the hidden tension…bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with.” It was King’s goal, always through nonviolent means, to foster this social crisis of inequality until it could no longer be ignored. Then, and only then, was systematic change possible.

Was this approach, “extreme?” Absolutely, as King wrote: “Was not Jesus an extremist for love…Was not Amos an extremist for justice…So the question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. Will we be extremists for hate or for love?
