Darren Porter: Fisherman and activist


WE KNOW GRASSROOTS ACTIVISM WORKS. But that’s not enough. It’s not the whole story. It leaves out the most important part. The part about all we do to make it work.

The part about all the remarkable things regular, everyday folks can do, and will do, all on their own, because they have a passion for a cause.

Thousands of us are doing those things all day, every day. It is our power and our glory.

The attached video records how gill net fisherman Darren Porter goes at it in Windsor, Nova Scotia.

It’s worth watching just a few minutes to remind us—one more time—how we truly are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
