March in March

19 Mar

Australia is a beautiful country. Everyone in this country, that I know, leads comparatively a rather good life and does not want this to change. So who are the people who joined the protest march? I actually do not know one person who joined the March in March. Even though I would have liked to protest about quite a few things, somehow I did not make it to do this marching. I am impressed with the people who did. I remember when we protested against the Iraq war, we were called “The Mob” by prime minister Howard. I have the feeling most establishment people would probably put the March in March into a similar category.

    Here is the link to another opinion about the March in March. I reckon it makes for some interesting reading.

    Thanks for the link! This is interesting. I’m not much of a group protestor, although I do think there is strength in numbers if the message is strong. I’m more of a letter/phone call person! I’d like to learn more about this, Uta. I haven’t heard of it, and it sounds quite fascinating. You’re right about things being comparatively so “good” in Australia, and I feel very similarly, but I don’t think we can use that as an excuse to be apathetic about things that stir our emotions. Again, the link will help!
