Today I'm marching

Because I feel like the world is sliding into a nightmare from which we may never wake up.

Because I like to believe that if I'd been alive in the 1930s, I would have protested against the Fascists.

Because I read Eichmann in Jerusalem. According to Arendt, under Nazi occupation the numbers of Jews deported to the camps varied enormously from country to country in Europe. Three-quarters of Dutch Jews died under Nazi occupation. Yet not a single Bulgarian Jew was deported - and the difference was down to public compliance.

Because silence is not neutrality, it is siding with evil. Doing nothing is not a moral option.
