Stansted: a reflection

The key question, in relation to protsts like that at Stansted last week, is:

which side are you on? Are you on the side of big corporations profiteering from completely unsustainable climate-destructive behaviour? Or are you on the side of people with no vested interests just making a non-violent stand, at considerable cost to their own time and money, for the sake of all our futures?

It doesn't seem to me a hard judgement to make...

Green Party Councillor, Norwich, and Lead Candidate for Eastern Region for the Greens in the 2009 Euro-elections.

DID YOU KNOW: A vote of about 10% across Eastern Region on June 4 2009 would be enough to get me elected to the European Parliament...

Do you mean "You're either with us or against us"? I remember someone else saying that once, and he ended up getting shoes thrown at him...

I'd be more inclined to support the protesters' stand if it could conceivably have any positive effect.

Oh yeah, and what Gary said.
