Remember Tibet

Fifty years of occupation. Colonizing a neighbor instead of another continent doesn't make it all right. Having an empire now instead of two hundred years ago doesn't make it all right.

Fifty years of non-violent resistance. The powers-that-be insist that's the right thing to do. Then they ignore the hell out of anyone who actually does it because quiet people aren't a problem. Don't ask why there's so much death and destruction in the world. Ask why there isn't more.
