"The Ministery of Interior had said that there will be no more protests allowed, and yet people protested anyway. So they arrested them. More poeple protested the week after, they arrested them as well. More people protested the week after that, so they arrested them as well. And now this is the 4th week, and they have finally given up. They recognized that they can't stop protests.

That's what we foght for from the begining, remember? Our right to freedom of speech? They said that there will be no more protests without arrests. And yet, we refused to give in, and now they are the ones who surrenderd. They know now that we can not be silenced any longer. That we will not give up our right to freedom of speech. Isn't that what we wanted all along?"

A desire to resist oppression is implanted in the nature of man.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well--a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world.
-George W. Bush

Freedom is the recognition that no single person, no single authority or government has a monopoly on the truth, but that every individual life is infinitely precious, that every one of us put in this world has been put there for a reason and has something to offer.
-Ronald Reagan
A Republican in San Francisco (Yes, he's under deep cover) relays his tales of interest... ...ok, "interest" is a strong and subjective word but you get the point.

I shall know but one country. The ends I aim at shall be my country's, my God's and Truth's. I was born an American; I live an American; and I shall die an American. -Daniel Webster (1782-1852)
