Student Demo London

There are some that have the courage to stand up and fight, and there are some that do nothing.

As much as I don’t know the in’s and out’s of the current demonstrations, I know that many great things have happened in this world by people taking a stand.

Take for instance Mr Nelson Mandela; went to prison for 27 years and then came out a hero. Why was he in prison? He was in prison because people didn’t like he’s approach or what he had to say.

I have to say that to a certain extent; we’ve got to take what comes to us. We gave the government the power to do what they are doing. Yes, many of us were unhappy with Labour, but then if we were not happy with Labour, we should have taken our chances and not re-elected them when they took us to the Iraq war.

I don’t know what the outcome will be or if our voices will be heard. What I do know is that there are going to be many hard times ahead so we have a choice to put up and shut up – or be heard.
