Anaconda, Cars, and Doctor: Nazia Hasan Kazi
 November 14 at 8:59am
 When did people start thinking "nonviolent protest
 meant "candlelight vigils" instead of withholding
 your labor, boycotting, shutting down highways and
 roads, opening cages, breaking laws that are
 unjust?
 Asking for a friend.

Well, shutting down highways and roads is dangerous and puts people at risk of harm. Other than that….

😑 and how does it do that? How are you at risk because you can’t go down the street you wanted to?

Because streets are used for emergency services. Also, EVERYONE uses roads. So, just as you might be inconveniencing white motorists on a Sunday drive you’re also putting the wellbeing of everyone at risk. People have doctor appointments, obligations, kids need to get to school. The only people you’re REALLY hurting when you disrupt vital services are the poor and disabled.


I’m poor and disabled, i have no time to be a shield here. 
Protestors rarely ever cause blockage to emergency vehicles and telling people to protest in a way that doesn’t inconvenience anyone is ridiculous. 
Staying quietly out of the way is not how change gets accomplished. People protest BECAUSE people are dying but I guess those people don’t fucking matter?

I’ve been to multiple protests that have blocked roads. Once, an emergency vehicle needed to get through. You know what happened? The protesters moved out of the way to let the emergency vehicle through and then moved back into place.
I know it sounds IMPOSSIBLE but I saw it happen.


People just so desperately want to perpetuate myths about protests, they sound like the fox news journalists who will call them “riots”. 
Protests are often organised and have people with experience as a part of it. They aren’t an angry mob turning over cars because there football team lost.

For a whole year, most of the students of my province led a general strike against the government. Of course, this featured demonstrations and protests… Everyday, mostly in the evenings, including a few general and national protest days when we’d be almost half a million marching through the streets of Montreal. 


And I can say with 100% certainty… We NEVER kept the emergency vehicles from passing through. Fire truck? We’d move out the way and form a safety corridor for them to speed through, then tighten ranks again. Ambulance? We’d move the fuck out of the way as fast as possible. The last thing we ever wanted was to have a death on our conscience. We were protesting unfair laws, not out for blood (unlike what the government liked to imply though -_____-).


You know who DID block the way to emergency vehicles though? 


The riot police. Whenever they injured people when they fired flashbang grenades right in the crowds and the exploded and sent shrapnel into people’s legs or faces, when they fired rubber bullets at face level against safety regulations, when they repeatedly rammed a downed, restrained protester with their batons and boots until teeth and blood covered the floor, they also systemically blocked ANY ambulances and first responders trying to get to the injured, or leave with a person in critical state to get to the hospital. They formed tight ranks and raised their plexiglass shields and stared them down, backed them off, trapped them with the protesters. Hell, they even arrested some of the first responders attending to the injured when they mass arrested the people they trapped with their own militaristic ranks.


You’re vilifying the wrong crowd, @taranoire, who I can’t seem to tag.

Nazia Hasan Kazi November 14 at 859am When did people start thinking nonviolent protest meant candlelight vigils instead of withholding your labor boycotting shutting down highways and roads opening cages breaking laws that are unjust? Asking for a friend moncarnetdenote geekandmisandry smitethepatriarchy geekandmisandry taranoire uteruskraken taranoire Well shutting down highways and roads is dangerous and puts people at risk of harm Other than that… 😑 and how does it do that? How are you at risk because you can’t go down the street you wanted to? Because streets are used for emergency services Also EVERYONE uses roads So just as you might be inconveniencing white motorists on a Sunday drive you’re also putting the wellbeing of everyone at risk People have doctor appointments obligations kids need to get to school The only people you’re REALLY hurting when you disrupt vital services are the poor and disabled I’m poor and disabled i have no time to be a shield here Protestors rarely ever cause blockage to emergency vehicles and telling people to protest in a way that doesn’t inconvenience anyone is ridiculous Staying quietly out of the way is not how change gets accomplished People protest BECAUSE people are dying but I guess those people don’t fucking matter? I’ve been to multiple protests that have blocked roads Once an emergency vehicle needed to get through You know what happened? The protesters moved out of the way to let the emergency vehicle through and then moved back into place I know it sounds IMPOSSIBLE but I saw it happen People just so desperately want to perpetuate myths about protests they sound like the fox news journalists who will call them “riots” Protests are often organised and have people with experience as a part of it They aren’t an angry mob turning over cars because there football team lost For a whole year most of the students of my province led a general strike against the government Of course this featured demonstrations and protests… Everyday mostly in the evenings including a few general and national protest days when we’d be almost half a million marching through the streets of Montreal And I can say with 100% certainty… We NEVER kept the emergency vehicles from passing through Fire truck? We’d move out the way and form a safety corridor for them to speed through then tighten ranks again Ambulance? We’d move the fuck out of the way as fast as possible The last thing we ever wanted was to have a death on our conscience We were protesting unfair laws not out for blood unlike what the government liked to imply though -_____- You know who DID block the way to emergency vehicles though? The riot police Whenever they injured people when they fired flashbang grenades right in the crowds and the exploded and sent shrapnel into people’s legs or faces when they fired rubber bullets at face level against safety regulations when they repeatedly rammed a downed restrained protester with their batons and boots until teeth and blood covered the floor they also systemically blocked ANY ambulances and first responders trying to get to the injured or leave with a person in critical state to get to the hospital They formed tight ranks and raised their plexiglass shields and stared them down backed them off trapped them with the protesters Hell they even arrested some of the first responders attending to the injured when they mass arrested the people they trapped with their own militaristic ranks You’re vilifying the wrong crowd @taranoire who I can’t seem to tag Meme
