Remembering Take Back the Night

Better late than never...

First of I would like to thank the organizers of this important night who let me take part in such an important protest.

Second of all, I believe that this evening was meant to inform the public of the abuse that women have had to face along with the idea that people should have the freedom to walk safely amongst the streets of Halifax. I do not believe that this was a protest meant to show off ones ability to hula hoop. We have seen your great skills at art shows and festivals before but I do not believe that your skills were necessary for the purpose of this march. Next time please march with the crowd. Standing out as a solo performer amongst a group effort is a distraction to observers.

Third and finally, I do not believe that it was necessary to express your comments of hate and distrust to the police officers who were only helping to make this march a safe one. If you have a problem with our law enforcement, you can march yourself to your nearest police office and make a formal complaint. But first, I would advise not wearing a bandanna around your face and speak directly to someone. Shouting random comments in the general direction of the police while surrounded by your friends in the middle of a march such as this is immature and will get your ideas nowhere. —Team Player
