I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

You are reporting the following comment to the PledgeBank team:

Although the government did ignore the thousands who marched against the Iraq war there is no equivalence between those demonstrations and what the 10,000 people who've signed here could effect if they acted in concert. A demo is just that, a controlled lot of people making a lot of noise for a day and then -- 'off you go, back home, you've had your say, we'll do what we like anyway!'BUT, 10,000 people all in their different locations, not a mob, not directly controlled, not arrestable, but throwing a pre-arranged co-ordinated spanner in the works TOGETHER -that, as a number of people have already said, is a different story!
