I would never try to prevent someone from trying. I would really like to
know what your strategy is - But 'Making the people more aware of such
things' usually turns out to be talking about whatever issue is of
concern and nothing more.
I'm quite serious about hearing what your strategy is if you have
something fresh and creative beyond the same old talk. Don't take that
as confrontation or attack. I genuinely want to know.
I would love to meet someone with a fresh approach - one that hasn't
been tried to no avail for the past god-knows-how-many years. I don't
know what that strategy would be - not a clue.
If you have a fresh approach, believe me when I say I will cheer you
on... as long as it is non-violent.
