Alton Protest heroes

I want to express how proud I am of the people who are out on the front lines fighting big business in Alton. The government throws out land treaty deals whenever the atrocities become more profitable. This practice of contaminating clean water for a business investment should be laughable. After all who in their right mind would trade life for money? Everyday the government sells us or our freedoms for profit. The people out there protesting are heroes. Throw caution to the wind and put yourself right on the front lines. So many of us are scared to or unable to because we're bogged down working the bullshit lives the government forces us into. I work for the oppressing force handling security at the protest site and have expressed my displeasure with said employer to the point where I think I will leave. Throw away a good paying job for your beliefs? Why, fuck yes. I'm no sheep. And I will be happy without a job if I have clean water. The plan of the government is to marketize all natural resources. The stuff in life that used to be free. Fight the Power. Keep up the good work! There are lots of us who can't be there, who support you!! The sooner we get back to marching and protesting like the ‘60s, the sooner we, the people, get our power back. —Maybe Not!!??
