I've heard LOTS of moaning about black folks marching for this or that. The predominant feeling is that marching is a tactic of the past and that it invokes a time when - I guess - black folks weren't strong enough to execute more powerful measures to get what it wants.
This raises the question, as a tactic, if other groups do it - all over the world - then why it it an outmoded tool for us? Millions of Mexican Americans marched over the last week. I remember powerful marches in South America when Bush and other world leaders were meeting last summer. In France, black folks marched (and also tore up shyt).
Just wondering your thoughts on the tactic of marching. Is it a relic of the past? Is it something that can still have usefulness for us?
