Re: what has happened to our sense of protest??

I suspect that most of these kids (many of whome are US citizens) really do know what they are protesting about. What really sparked this was the House Immigration Bill HR 4437, which would Criminalize a whole class of people, including their parents. That seems like a pretty good motivation to march to me. There have been protests by immigrants in the past, but these marches aparently dwarf past marches. But their families and communities are under attack by this bill. Whole communities of...
