With Squid’s impassioned words the assembled mutants were flushed with rage and ignoring the pleas of Bertie Foonbean rushed out of the hall in a near frenzy, some with tears streaming down their eyes. They marched to the American consulate in Montreal but they were a bit late as a group calling themselves Hecklevesquer’s For Freedom had been there first and were enjoying a bonfire of American flags. The fireman and police were there not arresting but clapping and cheering. The mutants being beaten to the punch went to the nearest McThinalds restaurant and smashed windows and scattered the restaurant’s cat meat all over the street.
Remember Garth Reseudo? He was the Zorollian oppositionist to Redbeard who had been exiled to Earth by Redbeard the despotic Zorollian leader and had exposed the corruption of Rufus Moonhead in California and had been forced to flee to Montreal by Moonhead corruptionists who threatened him with death. He and a group of his passive anarchists numbering in the hundreds had marched to the offices of the American Industrial Company, the company that stood the most to gain from the “sewage plant” construction and decided to stage a mass hunger strike. The Montreal police arrived and in a fit of nationalistic pride offered jugs of gasoline to create a blazing imitation of Detroit in a riot mode but Reseudo declined by saying, “A rampage will accomplish little. It will only bring more hate and repression. I don’t speak for everyone here but we can think of a nonviolent way of confronting American domination. My experience as an anti-war demonstrator in the United States taught me the futility of violence when confronting a vastly superior force of legalized counter violence. Let the world clear the stink of American imperialism. Such a world would be a more peaceful place to live in. Of course, the other great imperialists, the Russians would also need to be neutralized. Any chance of a docile Russian and American response does not seem to be reality. But at least we can fight to end American moral corruption. How can any nation that arms itself with nuclear weapons be morally legitimate? Millions can perish at the push of a button, And yes accidents can happen. These nuclear weapons are supposedly technologically advanced but are primitive and foul. I love the planet Earth and would hate to see it destroyed by such filthy and dirty weapons. The history of my galaxy is replete with horrid tales of nuclear devastation. In The Federation in another universe, we have learnt the truth. So comrade police we stay here until the construction of the missile base is halted. I will stay here and die until this happens.”
