Yep, those visitors have some ADDITIONAL (and perfectly un-necessary, but is there, can there be, 'necessary' blood ?) on their hands

" If you participate in the global economy, your hands are blood red, you've got blood all over. If you don't participate but allow it to continue, your hands are blood red. If you [help to] bring it down, your hands are blood red. We're in a bad situation, in the middle of an exploitative situation, and doing nothing is not a moral answer. "
-- DJ in "ENDGAME: An Evening With Derrick Jensen" 07/11

FEEDING the global economy is especially bad; and some things
(e.g. chemicals, (nuclear)energy, tekkno-stuff, idiot-drugs) are
obviously (eleventyand)umpteen times as bad as others (e.g. seasonal local bio food)

it's not as if ANY one of us would/could have clean hands. Everything is connected. Hishuk ish ts'awalk.

I cringe at the thought of these poor frightened bulls running 4 their lives year after year---disgusting. I blame the idiot tourists 4 keeping this event alive. Thx Zora
