Was it Mayan? Was it Incan? Was it Aztec? It was a ritual… a spiritual ritual. Civil disobedience is a rite of passage for any activist. The arrests were made with dignity. They were made with respect. The police were there doing their job. They didn't want to be called out into the heat – in full riot gear. They were there protecting the population from a threat. I never once saw a police officer with his or her hand on their gun. I never saw that salivation to escalate this protest into violence. I witnessed a true measured response. I witnessed activism. I witnessed people who moved the discussion forward by saying, “Wait! This is important. This is something that defines our community. This is something we don't agree with.”

Protesting is an art. This book is meant to inspire protests to be done peacefully and properly.
