Peaceful protest works... shutting down commerce costs the ultra-wealthy a lot of money. They withdraw the bill because it's costing them more money to try and pass it, than to withdraw it, conditions created only by the actions of the protesters

Always cool when governments are forced to listen to their people.

Makes me wonder, if protesters shut down LAX or JFK, how would they be treated here?
