Our efforts so far have been outward, using all our combined strength to try and make those responsible for this plight yield to our will.
But for rest of the winter I suggest as in the article we shift our energy internally. We may fall off the radar, but since the media has a tendency to showcase the most extreme of protesters, it would be a good thing to stop providing them with footage that could be used against us.
For the rest of the winter we sharpen our focus. The problem isn't the size of our targets, but the number of targets that has grown as a result of our inclusiveness. When trimming that fat, we all must be selfless if and when our personal goals failed to be incorporated into the goals of the movement. I know some of you don't want our cause to be reduced to sound bites, but that is just a side effect of having concrete goals.
So far the protests have demonstrated immense raw courage and passion, but with it we have gained a reputation as a troublemakers. But when spring comes we must show the world we also have the insight as well as the passion as how to make this nation live up to its promises once more.
Rest well, brothers and sisters.
