Victoria Idle No More Pow Wow Style
This event, although pleasant and uplifting, was a lost opportunity. The original location was moved because of objections from a corporation and the VicPD. Moving protest to when and where they are told to perform reduces the events from a show of solidarity with the Idle No More movement to a tourist attraction and an enjoyable event for the indigenous community.
Idle No More organizers move rally to avoid conflict with wedding and “fundraiser” at the Bay Centrewww.timescolonist.com/news/local/idle-no-more-organizers-…____________ ________________ _____________ _____________
What all of these people—the reactionary citizen, judges, and the naive INM participant—don’t realize is that the reason the state and its police forces “fail to act” is that they fear the greater potential disruption that Indigenous peoples are capable of.
So while some INM’ers believe they are leading a “peaceful” Indigenous Rights Revolution, they are actually benefiting from the militant grassroots resistance that preceded them, gained through blood, sweat, and tears, assaults, arrests, and in some cases death. Perhaps if they knew their history better, they would understand this.warriorpublications.wordpress.com/2013/01/13/peaceful-pro…
The painfully obvious weakness of the Idle No More movement;“The reformist methods promoted by the original founders has included the imposing of pacifist methods and so has dampened the warrior spirit of the people overall.”
“At best, these mobilizations show that there is a yearning for social change among a growing number of people, but social media enables them to bypass more experienced and radical groups, and their naivete leads them to think that these groups fail because they’re too radical. Therefore they appeal to the most basic and populist slogans, the least threatening forms of action, etc.”sketchythoughts.blogspot.ca/2013/01/zig-zag-on-idle-no-mo…
“Protest beyond the law is not a departure from ‘democracy’ - it is absolutely essential to it” (Howard Zinn)
What is the value of protest when governments’ ignore? When is civil disobedience not civil disobedience? What is a protest without a line drawn? How despicable and atrocious must our leaders’ actions be before the sheeple herd together and stampede through legislature door to stop what must be stopped? Without direct action there is no incentive for government to listen; institutions can only be motivated to change through financial profit or fear.
When a civil action is disguised as an act of civil disobedience, it likely costs the taxpayer as much expense as Black Bloc activists breaking windows, with far less impact and attention. When advocates of peaceful protest, such as picnics on the legislature lawn or hikes through city streets, denounce the actions of the Black Bloc, they only hinder advancements of their cause, and those who are willing to do more than they in the name of justice.
“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough [people] stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”(George Orwell)
