I was on a wheelie in my chair last week to town and found this group of people. We were demonstrating again for a better world, for protection of our environment. It is a small town and so the crowd remains small. It seemed to be something worldwide as there were various reports from other countries. This was not the first time.
The last time was in February, another universal movement. This poster says “has your brain melted already?”. I do not demonstrate, my activities in that direction are no longer possible, and I am glad that there are people that pay attention to our surroundings.
I remember my teenager days of demonstrations. The main theme was “ban the bomb” and that was in the sixties, we called them the swinging sixties in London where I lived. I did not march at Eatser to Aldermaston, which was the big theme at the time. It was the British plant for construction of atomic weapons. I think they also manage to pollute a few waterways in the attempt. No-one talks of Aldermaston today, but the bombs still exist: nothing like the “toys” they constructed at that time. Did those marches achieve anything? Not really, bombs are still being constructed, but at least we are aware.
Sensible would be to stop production, but forget it. In my life time it will not happen, and if there is no further life time in a 100 years, you can probably blame it on someone with his finger in the wrong place at the wrong time.
