When music is revolution

Round dance is happening everywhere everyday and it's central to the rising. A round dance revolution! Street corners, shopping malls, big roads, railroads, as well as a surprice in a tv-show. Here's an amazing clip:

It's happening on January 28.

Why is this revolution like a magnet on me? I guess parts of the answer is that I find it so powerful when a rising is driven by song, dance, drums, and has a center of peaceful protest. Non-violence in it's finest forms. Yet powerful and like tidal waves, this has grown for so long time and nothing can hold the tide back now. Another aspect I find so encouraging is when it's cross generations, old and young get together. Old and young take a huge interest in being politically active. That's huge! It's hope! Here's some really good talks and writings to give a much better picture than I am able to do. I'm only a mirror trying to give echoe of the fantasic things I hear. The smoke of their fires has travelled all the way to Sweden and I'm jumping of joy when I hear non-violence movement building up so strong.

  1. Jag kan bara hålla med! Det djupt mänskliga gestaltas bäst i gemensam sångdans, där hittar vi kraften att stå emot förtryck i alla dess former. Tack för att du skriver om detta, hoppas att många läser.
