While this bit of audio, recorded with my phone and k7.net, is not related to activism it does describe the excitement at a post game street party. This impromptu riot like event had more than two bonfires in the middle of the street and hundreds of people stopping all traffic to occupy downtown Chapel Hill, NC. It was funny to me how similar this event, in some ways, was to a protest, my friends yearly land party, and Burning Man. I wondered outloud, “What would it take to get these students THIS exited about changing the country via revolution?” Coach Williams declaring war on poverty? The men’s basketball team demanding a black president of the United States of America? Nope… instead all we have here is March Madness setting in, the start of the ACC tournament for 2005, and the beginning of battle in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
