Hey folks. Bickering about bickering does nothing. Do we expect no anger and emotion about yet another blow to our city? Merulla and Brattina will kiss and make up none the worse for wear. They are politicians.

Letters such as Brattina's or even threats to boycott Labatts are similarly useless. Just officious hand-wringing designed to dupe the voters. Where is a politician with guts?

What should be done? If someone actually restarted our brewery, could it survive? If the answer to that question is YES, then there is only one course of action to take. And since the pols are unwilling, it looks like it is up to citizens to do it.

Citizens, if you want the brewery to remain in Hamilton, you must boycott the road outside the brewery so that no equipment can go anywhere. 24/7. Call it a parade. A nice peaceful parade. For days or weeks or months or even years if necessary. Fly big kites or balloons nearby too so helicopters cannot be used to remove equipment.

We shall then see which side the politicians are really on. If they send the police to clear the road, well folks, follow the money. But perhaps a politician or two will find some courage to JOIN the parade so as to bring Labatt to heel.

Its time that Citizens stood up to Corporations (and crony politicians). Corporations are supposed to be a human construct to create wealth but now have become a juggernaut that tries to crush all who stand in their way, Monsanto style, on their way to the new world order - of serfdom for the masses. It is nigh time to curb their power for the benefit of the people. It might as well start in Hamilton.

Or as Plato said, your silence gives your consent.
