them? Alone, you can fight,
you can refuse, you can
take what revenge you can
but they roll over you.
But two people…can keep each other
sane, can give support…
Three people are a delegation,
a committee, a wedge. With four
you can play…start
an organization. With six
you can... hold a fund raising party.
A dozen make a demonstration.
A hundred fill a hall.
A thousand have solidarity and your own newsletter;
ten thousand, power and your own paper;
a hundred thousand, your own media;
ten million, your own country.
It goes on one at a time,
it starts when you care
to act, it starts when you do
it again after they said no,
it starts when you say We
and know who you mean, and each
day you mean one more.
