"In general, we do not think that protests are a good use of comrades' time and energy. We think that engaging in protests exhausts activists by corralling them into prescribed march routes and coaxing them into a sense of having 'accomplished something' while in reality the have only strengthened the state by providing data about the strategies and risk profiles of activists as well as practice responding to them. We do not feel that this increases activists' freedom or political power."

You're saying this is Summer 2020, after a month in which many protests have simultaneously involved megaphones calling for voting and crowds looting a block away. What's your alternative? Go back to gluing an ATM once a year?
