Ohhh. I don't know. I can tell you what we did. We stopped the coup but not the damage.

We went out on the streets and protested. A few people actually protested every day, though there were only a few at first. This was important. It wasn't a lot of people but they were REGULAR. They were always on the same corner.

Then the political parties and trade unions got together and had BIG protests. In the end, however, it was ruling from the Supreme Court that made their position untenable.

However, and this is important to note, the government that we put back went right back to being lazy dipshits, no one was ever held accountable, and so they continued fucking shit up from the inside. Basically the broke everything and then ran in elections saying 'look everything is broken'. Which is very effective.

That's what Republicans are doing, and will try to do. So, it's not just protesting. You have to organize all the time and KEEP fighting them. That's what we didn't do.
