Marches and Protests


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

The Committee mainly deals with exposures or potential exposures of non-human races, including marches and protests.

A few months ago we had to discuss the strike our Servants had. I easily persuaded them that it was a matter best dealt with internally and would not spill out into their remit.

Unfortunately I had to endure barbed comments from all the other Representatives because I had said our people would never strike.

Old Vampires have too much money and power to protest or go on marches. We prefer to work behind the scenes and manipulate events to our satisfaction.

However, both werewolves and New Vampires will happily threaten to protest or go on marches, mainly when they feel they are not being treated well by the other races.

Neither of these races has the money or the power that we Old Vampires and the humans have.

Occasionally, when diplomacy has failed, the threat has been carried out and the Human Police have not been happy that they have had to keep the peace at these events. From their perspective the threat of death or dismemberment is great.

However, I must admit that both werewolves and New Vampires protest much more quietly than humans and take care not to hurt any of them.

This is because the Human Police Representative has made it clear that anyone who injures any human in a protest will be facing time in jail, which I gather is an embarrassment to werewolves and an annoyance to New Vampires.

Our Servants kept the protest quiet as afterwards they had to go back to their employers so did not want to let the side down. I gather the butlers protesting dealt with any infractions of this speedily.
