Advice For Activists: ‘Shut Up’

These no longer young whites have some extremely good advice for activists in any movement that involves direct action or interactions with the police:

Woman: Hi!

Man: We were talking about you kids.

Woman: I’m Denise Heberle…

Man: …and I’m Bill Goodman.

D: Together we have fought fascism for over 50 years…

B: …and a lot has changed over those 50 years, like the ingredients for a successful firebomb…

D: …and the glass that the bank’s windows are made of.

B: But there’s one thing that hasn’t changed over 50 years, something that’s so important to tell you kids who are new to this movement.

Both: Shut up.

D: You are sitting in the police transport van after a protest.

B: Shut up.

B: In a cell with his companions.

D: Shut up.

D: Cop knocks on your door.

B: Shut up.

D: Text messages on an unsecured device.

B: Shut up.

B: Stopped by the police after a protest.

D: Shut up.

D: Cop just asking about your day.

B: Shut up.

B: Do the feds call your mother?

D: Tell your mother to shut up.

B: Now, repeat after me: when the police come to call, what do you do?

Youth group: Shut up.
