It certainly is, I was very excited when I ran across this simple showing of how those around the world are not quietly accepting their fate.

Noted w/thanks for posting, Dandelion. That was absolutely see those lights just explode worldwide in recent years...esp. here in the U.S. Gave me many smiles. We must continue.

Indeed we must continue. The Corporate media covers very little on these things but when viewed like this one can see there is a lot of action taking place. It also gave me great hope too.

It's nice to see that people not only "realize injustice," but are doing something about it! Thank you for sharing this interesting resource, Sheryl. I can't give you another star, but I certainly would if I could!

As I watched that, I couldn't help but notice how quiet the US was until the early 2000's, around 2006, except for a couple spots. Who was protesting what, almost continuously, in what I think is Kansas? Too bad we couldn't have begun that 15 years old as the Viet Nam war protests would have been shown. Interesting.

Oklahoma is out near Kansas area so that white dot might of been for that area. A lot of the native people's were brought to Oklahoma and that might explain why the white light was there. It's been a 500 year struggle for them.

I did wonder if that might have been Oklahoma, but had the same question. I would think you are right, Dandelion. Though that is a great sadness.

So often people think protest is a rare event--this can be a way to help them realize it is significantly more prolific

Thank you - it makes me feel less alone. Also agree it would have been interesting to see the protests "back in the day" when protesting was starting out, and to watch it grow thru VietNam.

Dandelion listed the indigenous nations exiled to Oklahoma. Many, many other actual protests have been ignored by the Foreign Policy maplighting in North America.

A Suppression Map would be very interesting.

....and I'm sure there were even more that are not reflected here. Thanks Dandelion for always reminding us all to stand up and let our voices of goodness and truth ring out far and wide. If we will not, who will............

People need to shout when things are wrong not lay down and play dead , after all there are so many more of us and actually so few of them.
