Discussion in 'protest, direct action and demos' started by Idris2002, Nov 25, 2016.

  1. on fb at the minute and the amount of abuse and shit being posted by random men at the the people who marched is pretty astounding. Some men do seem to be truly threatened by this. arseholes.

    "Size matters to Donald Trump" as the BBC new presenters keep mentioning this evening, trying (and failing) not to crack.

    So is this what we do? Just keep mocking the smallest* things until he implodes? This could be easier than we thought!

    Oh, wait, then we get Pence :facepalm:




    *not intended, but let's roll with it.

    A friend went on the demo in Shipley, which had a turnout of 1400 apparently.

    Good for a small town, there's been some local activism lately related to the bellend of an MP they have there, and it's been built off that I reckon. :thumbs:

    This has been a really amazing day. I participated in a smaller march near me. But it feels like something is really happening :)

    LynnDoyleCooper It's a complicated world innit.

    So what next? Are you in a political group or organization? Are you going to join one if not? How does the struggle continue from here? Serious questions.

    'babalon' is rather different to 'the whore of babylon'

    What are the big issues in your area? Are there any local groups you can get involved with?

    Funny how people who claim to be revolutionaries are moaning about people demonstrating against Trump because he was democratically elected!
     
  13. For balance, someone should organise a Pro trump march so the impotent utterly fucking seething & furious men can have their say

    Which is why I think large demonstration tend to be quieter, or perhaps I should say Have large quite sections.

    The thing about everyone retweeting that and saying "lol, irony!", etc, is that it also highlights all those who, at the time, told him to piss off and accept the result of a democratic election.

    Now, obviously there's no way of knowing if those who said that at the time were on the marches this weekend, and people can change their mind in the span of 4 years, but it just rankles that both sides can be just as bad as each other, and chastise each other for the exact same thing.

    There were demonstrations in Lisbon and elsewhere but very small, I read 100 in Lisbon somewhere.

    I don't think it's a question of trying to continue the wave
    I see what you mean.

    Sorry. I started to make a comment and then aborted the effort.

    I didn't realize the first strangled sentence stayed resolutely put..... :facepalm:

    It was going to be something like it's not just one wave that we have to prolong. It should be seen as a succession of waves coming in further and stronger, like a tide coming in.

    Something like that. But I lost interest in the image......

    Not sure what the point of the UK protests was. To force the UK govt to not support him? To show a mass objection whilst accepting the futility of it?

    To make the point that the world should not just be seen in white male terms perhaps

    Women protest against Trump on streets of Europe's capitals
