Don't stop people from going about their business

Protesters need to think harder. When you block roads or bridges, when you prevent people from going about their business, who are you winning over to your cause?

Not the worker who can't be tardy to work one more time or they'll be fired. Not the person trying to rush their ailing pet to the veterinarian. Not the parent rushing out to buy baby formula.

People trying to go about their business aren't suddenly going to be won over to your cause; they're going to be incredibly angry with you - and, by extension, possibly your cause.

Please think of others. Hold your signs. Chant. But do not stop people from doing what they need to do.
