Lawful Of Shit

about

In Calgary it is almost always assumed that protests and marches need
permits, and need to be perfectly legal. It’s this need to follow all
the rules that keeps radical and awesome actions that need to happen
in this community from actually taking place. For two years Dyke
March never happened despite widespread interest, because the
organizers couldn’t get a permit, and a majority of them insisted on
acquiring one. In other cities, this would never be an issue. Taking
to the streets only makes sense, and so it actually happens. We seem
to be so heald back by this fucked up ideology that we need to ask
permission and play nice if we want to say what we think. In the end
it just keeps us silent, unless we are saying what those in power want
to hear.

lyrics

Waiting in endless lines for permission to resist. Egypt, Greece and
Wall Street would fucking laugh at these permit seeking half-ass
attempts at social unrest.
