Today I took a day off of the streets, because I am tired physically and psychologically. Being everyday in a crowd of thousands with loud music, speeches, on alert for any eventual troubles, can turn a person into anything.
We are still waiting for the government to resign. We have been in the streets for 11 days now and the government is, let’s say, silent. They are playing on our patience and we are playing on theirs. It looks like a chess game pretty much; the only difference is the emotional rollercoaster.
One would feel simultaneously: happy and sad, angry and enthusiastic, strong and weak, alone but surrounded, hate and compassion. I can’t analyze those feelings objectively for the time being. All I say is being part of a huge mass (2.5 million all over the country) creates a different energy, some type of trance.
What makes a massive movement so powerful, i.e unchained passions, can be at the same time a threat. Being emotionally wreck is normal but it can lead to failure.
Today we made the longest human chain in the world and u can check it in the link below.
Have you been in a protest like this before? Can I know about your experience? I would love to hear about it, so please don’t hesitate to comment
