Alex deVries (Flickr’s alexthepuffin) may seem to be protesting powerlessly alone in Beijing. But he is not. Alex’s action is a lesson to us all: Do not fear to protest alone as you will never know what your lone voice will inspire.
When we Canadians see an unjust shutdown of our Parliament, when we see our democracy being trampled, when we see prime minister harper thinks he is above Parliament and above the law, when harper thinks he doesn’t need to answer to Parliament, then it is up to each and every single one of us Canadian to stand up to fight and protect our democracy and Parliament.
The fight will go on until there are no Canadian left standing anywhere in the world.
So, thanks Alex for caring enough to fight for Canada all the way from Beijing, China on January 23rd, 2010 together with Canadians in Calgary and around the country.
P.S. Yes, harper want us to have short term memory and forget that our democracy has been shutdown by him single-handedly. It is up to us to keep remind harper we may forgive but we will NEVER FORGET.
