sorry for the inconvenience

change_the_world

The vitriol sometimes emitting from otherwise decent, educated folk – my friends – when their fun is interrupted by demonstrators is shocking. One friend railed against how Occupy was being inconsiderate and getting in the way: her friend was having a wedding at St Paul’s Cathedral, London and asked the occupiers to leave but they declined and even saw it as a media opportunity for their cause. A former classmate wrote a pissy post on Facebook about how Occupy Frankfurt was ruining his one-day trip to the city.

News flash: Social change isn’t meant to be comfortable or convenient. I mean, fuck.
