PR Mississippi Protest

Those of us who respect human rights should refuse to "unite behind" fascism and fear. Those of us who believe in the sanctity of the environment should decline to accept a climate change denier as our leader. Those who uphold the rights of women should never support a rapist and misogynist as president. Those who believe in the brotherhood of mankind should disown someone whose power rests on racism and resentment.

That awful Wednesday morning, waking up to the realization that the system (not the people) had elected a dangerous demagogue as president, a few of us at Ole Miss decided to protest. Standing there, in the cold, holding signs reaffirming that "Black Lives Matter," that "Love Still Trumps Hate," and that we were "In Solidarity with the Muslim Community" (I added one reading, "Get Your Laws Off My Body -- Pro Woman, Pro Choice"), made me feel that the struggle continued. Through protest and principle, we shall overcome.
