“Keep on marching”

“[T]his government did not concede anything out of ‘caring’. They were drove to their knees by the pressure from the marchers…”

On Thursday at a budget protest outside the premier’s Labrador office in Happy Valley-Goose Bay a CBC reporter asked me what I thought of the government making a concession and ending the ‘levy tax’, as if there was a possibility I would say we should be grateful we got that much.

I said absolutely not — this government did not concede anything out of ‘caring’. They were drove to their knees by the pressure from the marchers, and we have to keep on marching. So, brothers, sisters: keep the pressure on. Remove thy fingers from thy keyboard and join the marchers! We are fighting for something that is RIGHT. Keep on marching.
