I had family duties yesterday that took me away from computer from 6 am to 8 pm and, having only slept 2 hours the night before, I literally thought I had fallen asleep and was dreaming when I began to watch the clips of the protests in Berlin, London, Warsaw, Manchester, and countless other cities, protesting Covid fascism.
Here is a link to a FB page called “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” that collects protest footage from all around the world. Total media blackout, of course.
It felt like a moth with God’s light landed on my numb hand. “Don’t give up. Don’t fall asleep. Hope is real.”
Was I really seeing what I thought I was seeing? People by the thousands, “ordinary” people, who have sat at home making signs everything from the right to breathe without a mask to the right to not be “tested” by PCR tests that can “find” Covid in a Paw Paw or blank cotton swab. These “issues” that used to be so rare, obscure, and strictly associated with AIDS “denialism.”
Tears come to my eyes when I see these crowds gathered, not in the name of some form of cultural decadence or irrelevant discharge but in the sacred name of human freedom.
At the 24 minute mark, my friend, Dr. Kevin Corbett, whose articles warning of the “Nazification” of the NHS, have been published here, speaks. I am very proud of him, and proud of every last one of us who stood up to this loathsome attack on human life, despite how exhausted we are and how angry it made the people around us. Watching these clips, and regardless of outcome, I believe humanity has already triumphed. I’d love to know, since I was out of the loop yesterday, if anything happened in the US, and if so where?
