Citizens must stand up, speak out and be heard by government

Letter to the editor regarding citizen engagement in Victoria

When truth is denied, the cities will turn into death camps. Of course they will when the food dries up and the water is poisoned by all the pollution that is put into it. There is a limit to what can be filtered out.

We are spending our wealth on purchasing land that was forcibly taken and can never really be owned.

The Capital Region is filling Heal Lake and Hartland Landfill with garbage, harassing me from giving stuff away in my free store, and then arresting me on TV for breaking a bylaw. And then when I run for their puppetry office of mayor I am treated as if I do not exist, and do not have any freedom or right to protest or change what their elitist uncivil service has ordained for their own good.

Oh yes, the cities will turn into death camps and the earth will be destroyed, not by the people but by the governments. You are sold out by your cartoon controllers who falsely tell you this is your choice: that you get the government you deserve. No, you do not.

You, the 99 per cent, are still the power. Stand up, speak out, and don’t be dummied down by clowns.
