When they come for peace protestors join the protest

First, they came for the peace protestors, and I did not speak up.

Evil begins with small, seemingly innocuous acts—the kinds of acts we dismiss as too small or irrelevant. 

Upon the first act – for example – the act of threatening and arresting peace protesters or the explosion from a country of those who seek to speak for the oppressed – the second act builds. 

By our permission. 

Our silence makes us complicit.

Genocide doesn’t happen without our sanction.

Protest—breaking laws that must change to afford justice to everyone—is an act of the ages by people who know the greater threat. Our silence and inaction allow incomprehensible injustice.
