"Today, the voices of all those who have fallen, all those who were crushed beneath the unjust heel of oppression, those who cannot or do not speak for themselves, be it from fear or inability, shall be heard. We may be few, but we speak for a million more, we speak for every "mutant" that yearns for peace, for every man, woman, and child that longs to be embraced by their brothers and sisters only to be shunned, kicked away like stray dogs in the street.
We are here to say that we are here. We are your neighbors, your friends, the men and women who serve you coffee and teach your children, we are your loved ones and the ones who smile as you pass in the street. We are not "mutants", we are men, we are women, we people just like you. We bleed, we cry, we feel, and we are not going anywhere.
America is our home, as it is yours, and all we want is to be free, to be accepted, and to be loved. Our wishes are the wishes of all who have suffered at the hands of others and choose not to give their hearts over to hate: brotherhood, sisterhood, friendship and peace.
We are here America, reject us or accept us, here we will stay. Though I am but one man, today I march for a million just like me, a million men who hoped for peace."
Recent events in Delaware, namely the scheduled execution of local hero Brain Child, (Washington DC thread) have made local radio personality and mutant "Cyclops" push up a planned march to Washington DC to protest for mutant rights, against the unfair treatment and persecution of his kind, and for a general shift in the average person'a perception of mutants.
The core of the protest is devoted to peaceful protest and nonviolence, and they number about three hundred or so. They will not retaliate no matter what, but that's not to say those that join them (If they are joined by others) will be as devoted. The spirit of the protest has been made clear, however, so those that join should not be immediately inclined toward violence.
Rules are the same as always, but I will control the core group of protestors.
If you want to throw everything to poop and say the mutants that join them are all human murdering psychopaths I won't stop you, but I will be very disappointed in you young lady.
