The Castle Is Not The Aggressor

This week, water protectors were attacked with water cannons, mace, and rubber bullets. What if we arm ourselves with shields and gas masks? What if we learn new techniques?

The castle is never seen as the attacker

it can only be attacked

The longer it stands

the more we attribute justice to its strength
