birmingham protesters

We who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.

Injustice must be exposed, with all the tension its exposure creates, to the light of human conscience at the air of national opinion before it can be cured.

Me at the Birmingham anti austerity protest last week!!! Thousands showed up to protest against the Conservative party whom have more or less illustrated that they are completely unfit to not only rule the country but ever return to power, as they stifle the situation for the British working class daily. The right wing in Britain has continued to scapegoat refugees and as a first generation refugee, it was nice to see so many protest against the racist scapegoating of migrants!
