Yes, I understand that there have been arrests at demonstrations. The repression is beginning and my point is that must strengthen our ability to resist and we must work proactively.
With respect to my comment regarding arrests and legal bills, what I wanted to communicate is that we, in the US, may had down a road in which criminalization of dissent and arrests reach a par with what is taking place in countries such as Turkey and Egypt, where people, who have not even participated in demonstrations, are arrested, and in some cases held without charge, solely as a result of having been identified, by unnamed accusers, of having communicated ‘treasonous’ thoughts.
Yes, Resist and Disrupt. You are right, multiple layers of support are necessary. Similarly multiple layers of action are also necessary. The movement for social justice must also include progressives, committed to the long term struggle, who analyze, organize, prepare, plan, and establish democratic control in our local communities as well.
