Do you ever get to stop? No? Maybe an extra pair of socks then. When I was in university the campus anti-choice group was called ‘McGill Students for Life’. We – the Dailyites – used to go up to their tables in the student union building and say naïvely “Does that mean you’re never going to graduate? That’s sad.”
We’d stop short of putting coins in the jar, naturally. There was no YouTube in those days but it would have made some pretty good amateur pwned video.
Thank you to all the people who went out and did the real thing and went out to counter demonstrate. Please forgive my silly inadequate bit of slacktivism.
I’m not fooled by the Citizen coverage that plays up the youthful energy of today’s anti-choice display. Catholic schools have always made these things mandatory field trips – rented buses on the school board’s dime and everything – for the kids. It’s the original astroturfing.
