Feb. 17th, 2014

I'm starting to think I have no choice but to get back to going to protests. I'm starting to get the impression that the only useful thing I can do at this point is go and park my scooter and I in front of a line of cops, and hope like hell they are civilised about things like they (mostly) used to be.

But apart from the March in March I'm not seeing anything much.

And oh Lord, have I mentioned how much I don't like packed crowds? Or demonstrations? Or a hundred and one little socialist groups all touting for new recruits? And the risk of crowds turning to violence (and there's always some numpty that wants to have this happen)?

I certainly wouldn't risk going on two legs and a walking stick. Aside from my inability to comfortably walk more than about 50 metres in a stretch, and my inability to stand for any length of time, in any kind of crowd I need people to be able to see my limits (and not confuse my walking stick with a weapon). Especially police officers, quite frankly.

I noticed that on FB just after I posted this. Alas, it's a 10AM thing.

*grump*

But should you learn of any afternoon protests - could you please give me a heads up in case I'm out of the loop?

March well, march proudly!
