I was there and couldn't be more proud of everyone. I saw the .50 guy, the guillotine, a Hong Kong flag, rooftop snipers, folks dressed as revolutionary soldiers, armored cars, elected officials... and lots of people of all races, religions, creeds and orientations coming together in the most polite, civil show of unity I've ever had the privilege to be a part of. Everyone was friendly, cordial and professional. Seeing folks peeling stickers off of the streets to leave the place better than we found it was heartening. The media doesn't know what to make of any of it. Shame on Northam for trying to bait us and for pushing the 'emergency' narrative, and a great big thanks to everyone who worked to show that demanding our civil rights has nothing to do with race or hate. The fight is a long way from over, but I'm calling this one a sound victory. Keep up the pressure and the good work. Another great big thanks to the VCDL for organizing, they did a lot of incredible work especially with the last minute changes they had to navigate.
