CommonSpace reproduces the speech delivered by activist Myshele Haywood at the Aberdeen anti-Trump demonstration earlier this week
I DON'T know about you, but I’ve been filled with despair these past few weeks. It’s been horrifying to watch the hard-won victories of the past hundred years be swept aside by the whims of politicians without a democratic mandate, without a conscience, without a plan.
I’ve been angry, too, and scared, and confused. But mostly I just want to crawl under the duvet and hide. Wake me up when the revolution comes.
