If I go to this, what can I expect? I've never been to a protest march before. Kettling? Water cannons? Cops with tear gas guns? A bunch of people in non-descript suits taking pictures of us all? Anonymous calls to my employer, suggesting my continued employment would present a problem if they should want more gov't contracts?
Despite what the naysayers may say, this is important. I want to do my part. I will not just lay down because "its never going away". The only way I know for certain to lose a fight is to not fight. We may not win, but are you really going to be coward enough to not even try?
