Good for them.
It should be obvious to everyone that keeping the people divided is one of the main focuses of those in power. The last thing they want is the people coming together and start holding elected officials and bureaucrats accountable for what they do.
Last year, protestors here shut down the telescopes on Mauna Kea for 6 months. The state spent millions of dollars in overtime pay for law enforcement during the protest.
If you tried to organize a similar protest here against the government, I suspect you’d find yourself being hauled off to jail pretty quickly.
