The burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander, that’s not our job. If you have a critique for the resistance for our resistance, you better have an established record for critiquing our oppression. If you have no interest in equal rights for black people, then do not make suggestions for those that do. Sit down

Tamo Campos the co-founder of Beyond Boarding and the grandson of David Suzuki had lot to say after being arrested at the Kinder Morgan Pipeline Protest in Burnaby, BC. The statement he provided to the public was both powerful and moving. It provided a narrative to not just to the protest in BC but, it also provided a voice to public protest in Ferguson, and the one taking place in Hong Kong. With the question of “Is it radical to use police force to quell public opposition and public opinion?” Campos was successfully able to make the public question the events taking place in Burnaby and why their voices should be heard.
