That was one of the slogans of the protesters gathered at Liberty roundabout. I only managed to read one as I passed them on my way home, half an hour ago.
Yes, there was a rather small bunch (so far) of university students, dressed up against the light cold weather, holding a peaceful protest against the NATO attack on one of Pakistan’s bases. Just standing quietly on the perimeter of the roundabout, hoodies up, facing the busy market place, holding their signs and rallying forces.
Sure there needs to be noise. But the noise will only be effective when it is not painful for anyone to hear. Bangs and smoke are usually the distraction, not the real magic.
I highly commend their effort.
And any anger that I felt at once again being stuck in traffic immediately vanished.
It’s the least I can do, considering I’m not standing there with them right now but sitting cozily in my room, having a snack, and writing this post which won’t even probably be read by many.
NO to slave government! NO to slave government! NO to slave government!
