Yeah, the bedridden part sucks. How long is that going on?
But gatherings don't necessarily have to be demonstrations. It can start with something as simple as a book group where the books all address oppression issues (I've got a great list of books for such things, though the focus of most of them are around race issues).
An awareness campaign can start with something as simple as bringing in a public speaker who speaks on such topics to a church or bringing in a trainer for a group of people who are interested in learning more about anti-oppressive practices.
Not that demonstrations don't have their place, because they're needed too, they're just one branch of a vast tree. But yeah, I'd think all bets are off in Wasilla for a while longer :P
