I agree with Justin. Besides the crucial outreach aspect, I think it's also important that this movement shows that it is not a traditional protest, but something else: a space for and by people, organizing and empowering themselves, learning, sharing ideas. Yesterday evening, when I arrived to the square, there was no drums (they were probably at the march). There was a quiet but yet intense atmosphere there: small groups discussing on different things, people speaking. I believe that quietness was far more eloquent and powerful than a thousand drums.

nope. Not going to give up that easy.  We need to ask them to go to
back steps for a few hours so we can grow our movement. I think if we
do it in a respectful organized way, it is possible.
