Well, Anon, I would love for you to be the activist role model here, or for you to take the lead, but you don't even identify yourself.

And for you to claim that Montreal's group is 100,000+ and somehow demographically similar is double-nonsense: you say so yourself that one-off one-day events don't earn you activist status, and neither does participating in a huge one-off demonstration on March 21st. The recent protests in Quebec are measured in the hundreds, and sometimes the thousands, so let's get real here: They are led by (paid) student union organizers, and overwhelmingly carried out by students who are on strike and have a lot more time on their hands than someone working 40 hours a week.

What are you really trying to get at? I agree, "Words do not an activist make," but no Hamilton groups have the spark you desire, so why aren't you trying to light the fire rather than anonymously whining online? If you set up the tent at 100 Main, I'm sure people will join you.
