When you cut facilities, slash jobs, abuse power, discriminate, drive people into deeper poverty and shoot people dead whilst refusing to provide answers or justice, the people will rise up and express their anger and frustration if you refuse to hear their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard.
Martin Luther King Jr. (via carlykitty)
I guess if no one listens to you, you try to make yourself heard in every language available to you. Even if the language is self-destructive.
