Arab Spring is alive and well in America

I have to applaud the students at UC Davis for their non-violent response to the campus police who were attempting to clear a way through non-violent demonstrators. You’ll have to watch the entire 8-minute video to see what the students did to end up winning.

There’ll be a lot more winning before this is over. Unfortunately, there will be violence also, but not in this case. Here’s a link to the full salon.com article.

I particularly enjoyed UC Davis’ Chanceller Robert Birgenau’s confusion and abject ignorance over what constitutes non-violence. He too is so obviously afraid.

Thank you Ghandi, Rosa Parks, et al for your refusal to be quite literally beaten into submission.
