Heather McCuen reflects on the hostility toward “the protesters” in Montreal. She wonders how the city ended up so divided, and how to move forward toward a more inclusive political climate.
Of course, this has eerie similarity to the situation in Egypt where words such as “demonstrators” and “revolutionaries” lost their appeal and are actually despised by many in the public.
McCuen’s post is worth reading, especially by so-called “revolutionaries” as she provides an objective diagnosis of the problem with constant demonstrations and life beyond camping in the street towards "strategy" and not just tactics. Excerpt:Image: Travis Mushett
