protest by taking knee

I suggest a national event in which all progressive people, on the same day and time, take the knee to protest against police brutality against black citizens. Abuses against immigrants -- people of color -- could also be represented in this protest. Like the Women's March, itt would be visually powerful and might even get the attention of the rational right.

    GREAT IDEA, IN THE HENRY DAVID THOREAU, GANDHI, AND MARTIN LUTHER KING TRADITION OF NON-VIOLENT PROTEST, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE AGAINST EVIL, PASSIVE RESISTENCE. SUCH MASSIVE, UNMANAGEABLE ARRESTS, FOR REFUSAL TO PAY TAXES FOR THE WAR MACHINE, COULD HAVE ACTUALLY ENDED THE VIETNAM WAR 10 YEARS EARLIER!!!
