@prologic@twtxt.net I think once you’ve decided to be arrested, you’ve crossed a line, you’re part of something bigger, and it’s the size of that body, globally, that really counts; less so what you’ve decided to stand in front of that day. We’ve got loads of Just Stop Oil people in prisons, for example, from last year; no one really remembers what they were arrested for; but they are being counted, to this day and every day, by a growing number of people around the world.

@prologic@twtxt.net Sorry for the late reply: yeah, bender’s right; crossing a line just means, in some regard (or many, in Greta’s case), you can’t go back. As an example, if I’d joined Just Stop Oil a few years ago, I’d now be faced with having to move my family to Canada, a lengthy (likely doomed to fail) appeals process, having to find a new job… But Greta is young; she probably isn’t too concerned about where she can or can’t visit or live, and she obviously feels very strongly about this cause. Frankly, I’m in awe of her, and wish her every success. But that is a line that cannot cross; or not for a very, very long time.
