Pause for Thought
With Diane Louise Jordan
There was a clever little carton in the papers this weekend of a placard with the words "Pussy Riot - guilty!" and next to it a cat holding another with the words "Not in my Name.".....
Funny! and of course referring to the recent controversy over a demonstration by a Russian punk band who, some say, blasphemed in their provocative protest against government policy.
In the same week they were sentenced for their actions at least 34 people were killed in South Africa during another protest that arose because they too believed there was no other option for registering their disquiet.
Funnily enough, both these protests remind me of a grievance a little closer to home.
I'd agreed to babysit my 4year old niece, so arranged to meet her and her Mum in town. However when I arrived it was evident my niece had no prior knowledge of our plans and therefore wasn't happy. And despite her Mum's commanding, firm insistence for her to do as she was told my niece's loud, tearful resistance reached a crescendo when she flung herself to the ground in protest.
Very concerned about this uncommon distress in her child, my sister in law knelt down beside her and in a gentler tone, began acknowledging and empathising with her daughter's genuine upset. Once my niece realised she was being heard she calmed down enough to listen to, and agree, the new plans.
To an onlooker my niece was displaying bad behaviour, but like those adult protestors, where the outside perception can be of bad or lawless behaviour, she was simply showing the very serious consequences of not being heard.
I'm no fan of antisocial behaviour, whatever the reason, but since these recent events, I've been asking myself what difference it'd make if I gave others the chance to express their views before making decisions that effect us both....
