Watch and share...

Powerful images and music remind us that civil disobedience is nothing new.
Sadly, neither is police brutality- but watching the resolve of dedicated protesters through the decades makes me realize what others have risked and given up for causes they believe in...and how we've benefited from their determination.
This also reinforces the fact that the 'authorities' who employ fire hoses, clubs and pepper spray never accomplish the goal of silencing the protests...they mostly achieve the opposite, which is strengthen the commitment of those speaking out, therefore promoting the very causes they are fighting to quell.
Thanks to The Strolling Scones: Rick and Helen, and David Jacobson at Words & Pictures for creating this.
