Love. &protest

March 27th, 2012 § 1 comment


I love with tenacity. I will never stop. Never. Ever.
I will always keep fighting. I will never give up.

I love people unabashedly and overwhelmingly. I memorize Beyonce songs and sing them on top of my lungs imagining you in front of me. YOU. I learn dance moves to serenade you with all of me, all of my body, all of my body moving towards and inside you. MAKE LOVE TO ME. I find mountains in the city and go running up them, like the Kate Bush song, with the hope that I find you on the other side.

Then I stop and remember that you taught me a thing or two about tenacity in love too.

I took this at the largest demonstration in Quebec History on March 22, 2012. Over 200, 000 came out in solidarity to stop the tuition hikes and stop the commodification of education.

There are major strikes and protest happening all over Quebec, and in my city of Montréal. I am out strategizing, meeting, striking, protesting, picketing every day. IF WE LET THEM WIN, THEN WHAT THE FUCK DID WE FIGHT FOR? I hate the discourse of win/lose, but it is the government’s and it is what we are in – a game. Please be mindful when reading the Anglo media, they are conservative, they are misrepresenting our actions, our motivations and our tenacity for a better way. Read the French media if you can.

Audre Lorde:

“Your silence will not protect you.”

“and when we speak we are afraid
our words will not be heard
nor welcomed
but when we are silent
we are still afraid
So it is better to speak
we were never meant to survive”

Hi hi... your words mean everything to me.
