“We really have to make a stand,” Aaron said full of conviction.

The others in the room gave a nod of agreement, but inwardly were full of fear at the prospect of standing up to the authorities.

Jacquelyn was excited however.  The prospect of resisting the arbitrary searches of her quarters by the Administrator’s henchmen thrilled her.

She slowly rose to her feet and with a trembling voice shouted, “To the barricades.”

With that Aaron, Jacqui, and Felix began to lug the lounge furniture from the day room of Peaceful Acres Care Home into the street.  They placed the first red chair in front of the staff driveway, and then slowly hobbled back to collect another chair.

Some revolutions start slowly.
