we are not frightened anymore, we stood up

66 straight days of protesting, that’s where we’ve come to. mostly peaceful (outside of the occasional spur of excessiveness) the revolution we set out to achieve sometimes seems elusive, mostly because of the complete nonchalance of the power-hungry coalition who have sunk their teeth deep and won’t let go. but we are determined to see it through because this is no longer just a fight against the ruling parties, it’s a fight for this country’s future. for our future. for your future.

so we’ll see you in september, assholes, when you’re back from your month long vacation (yep, in the midst of the all-out demonstrations, they decided to take august off… as you do). this time the tactics will change. get ready, we are.

* * *

We are not frightened anymore
We stood up, we stood up
And there are two of us, there will be more
They’ll show up, they’ll show up, they’ll show up

Blame a change of mind
A seismic shift in times
They told us not to fight
But we’ll fight it till we die

‘Cause we are not frightened anymore
We stood up, we stood up
And there are two of us, there will be many more
They’ll show up, yeah, they’ll show up

And so they sunk every ship we sailed
But we stood up, yeah, we stood up
And they fought hard but somewhere fighting failed
They’re all shook up, they’re all shook up, all shook up

Steel and concrete break
Beneath the steady waves
Of fearless hope and grace
In kindness there is strength

‘Cause we are not frightened anymore
We stood up, we stood up
And there are two of us, there will be more
They’ll show up, they’ll show up, yeah, they’ll show up

We are not, we are not, we are not, we are not
We are not, we are not frightened anymore
We are not frightened anymore

btw, all of the photos were taken with my cell phone, but i think they capture the spirit of the protests quite well.
