Tasting activism

If you give me a fish you have fed me for a day. If you teach me to fish then you have fed me until the river is contaminated or the shoreline seized for development. But if you teach me to organize then whatever the challenge I can join together with my peers and we will fashion our own solution.

Saturday I took three of my kids to the political rally to protest the prorogation of Parliament. We've been watching Rick's Rants and talking a lot about how our government works and the kids were quite disturbed by Prime Minister Harper's... ahem.... approach to democracy and felt we should do something to voice our concern. So we did.
