06 Jul, 2020


"It is a crime to poison the minds of the meek and the humble, to stoke the passions of reactionism and intolerance ... to exploit patriotism in the service of hatred ... to ensconce the sword as the modern god, whereas all science is toiling to achieve the coming era of truth and justice."
Émile Zola

"Protesting is never a disturbance of the peace. Corruption, injustice, war, and intimidation are disturbances of the peace."
Bryant McGill
"Simple Reminders"

"Even the tiny protest helps."
Patsy Mink

Every raised voice
Every protest--
Short or long,
Small or large,
Ruly or unruly--
