The Time Is Now: When Injustice Becomes Law, Resistance Becomes Duty *Video*
August 25th, 2012
The time is now.
As Iraq Veterans Against the War we are resisting an occupation we once risked our lives for. We swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, but we found out the hard way that the greatest enemies of the Constitution are not to be found in the sands of some far off land, but right here at home.
When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.
It is time we start meeting repression with resistance.
They cannot stop us.
Humanity marches on.
The utmost manifestation of love and devotion to America is today, as it always has been, resistance of tyranny.
Resist we must and resist we will.
We will not be silent. We will not obey. We will not let our government destroy our humanity.
