Is something ticking you off and you have to say something about it?

Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is how you protest:

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  



This man was protesting the APEC conference in Korea in 2005 -- but I don't want to focus on what specifically he was protesting. Instead, look at his face and his stance. The underdog-cheering American in me has to admire not just this man's defiance, but also his look of "Is that all you've got?" coupled with "I shall not yield!"

There are things worth fighting for. There are things worth being hurt for. There are things worth standing up and defying for.

With a list of injustices on this planet a mile long, what do you stand up for?
