But silence is complicity, so:</p> <p><strong>Black Lives Matter.</strong></p> <p>My daughter went to the London demo on Wednesday (note: there was no riot, contrary to some bullshit hashtag that was trending yesterday morning). I am <em>so</em> proud of her. Her whole generation seem so thoughtful, so engaged.</p> <p>Why didn’t I go? To be honest, it’s because I was scared. Not of the demo, or anything that might have happened there. I was scared of the virus. Of the close contact that was sure to happen. </p> <p>I gave her a lift to her friend’s house. They walked for two and a half hours to Hyde Park. I picked her up in Camden afterwards. But part of me wishes I’d gone myself. She said it was a much younger crowd than the <a href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/07/15/trumping-through-london/”>Trump</a> or <a href=”https://devilgate.org/blog/2018/10/22/march-in-october/”>Brexit</a> demos. sure, it was a weekday, but more of us olds — me included — should have been there.</p></div>black lives mattercoronavirushttps://devilgate.org/blog/2020/06/04/what-must-be-said/Thu, 04 Jun 2020 20:00:24 GMThttps://devilgate.org/blog/2017/05/12/3418/Martin McCallion<p><cite>Brooklyn Nine-Nine</cite> was on fire tonight.
