For lack of a better word, it’s a bit funny how casually everyone is reacting to what’s happening in Seattle today.
“Oh, the city’s rioting right now guys, nbd tho.”
It’s funny because similar incidents occurred here in Montreal tonight, albeit on a lighter scale, hundreds of protesters were detained and ticketed. I get that it’s “May Day” and all of that hullabaloo, but really, what does all of this accomplish?
Tomorrow we’ll all wake up, bright and early, and realize that for the sake of our individual and collective societal grievances, whatever they may be,cities were lit your city on fire while we watched it burn. A broken store window is now a broken business. Whoever owns that drug store is going to be pissed tomorrow, I’m sure. And rightfully so. The supposed free world is revolting, and for what?
For now, the mess will be cleaned up and put away. Until next time.
One year ago, I found myself in Montreal writing tests just hoping I’d be accepted into Concordia.
It’s been a whirlwind of a year, but today, as I stood in the same place I did one year ago, I handed in my final paper for the year. Yeah, I’m getting sentimental, but, it feels good, man. Feels good.
