"We don't give a fuck, the time is now."

When word spread that the Portland police had just
shot a man to death at the Hoyt Arboretum, we knew we had to make a
choice: to allow ourselves to be human, or to participate in our own
murders, to hide away in sleep and the unfolding of a routine that ends,
for all of us, in death. It's a choice that has been made for us so
many times before: by the media, by community leaders, professional
activists, bosses, teachers, parents, friends who do not push us to
confront this fear with them. We are killing ourselves with so much
swallowed rage.
