Another march in 2012? Yippee!

Some activists are calling for another march in 2012. Apparently, marches have to appear every so often, like 17-year cicadas. Since I remember the festivals of self-indulgence that were previous marches, I for one want to hear more specifics on what the march is supposed to accomplish and how the march is supposed to accomplish it.

The article quotes Robin Tyler as saying,
If you think mass actions do not work, look at what is happening in Egypt right now.
If the analysis were that simple, the world's problems would have been solved a long time ago. We need to examine how some mass actions work and others amount to flushing resources down the toilet.
