Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I am someone who stopped going to protests in May of 1970 when I was asked to chant in front of a GE stockholder's meeting, "Save Mother Earth."  I swore at that moment that I would NEVER do something that irrelevant and goofy again.

When 'normal' people go home just because they don't like the company of the nutters the nutters remain.

If 'normal' people really cared, they'd easily crowd out the nutters and street theatrists.

In fact, things could get as bad as for you in May 1970 only because the majority of 'normal' people bowed out of activism long before you.

I'll add that I did not go to an anti-GMO demo in order to prance around dressed as the Green Giant. I went in hopes there'd be a significant number of "normal" people like me. I was disappointed.

You have the luxury to be disappointed :-) I can be happy when even just the nutters turn up.

Yes, that's true.
