Lots of us "give a damn" but are busy supporting those who don't work so they can protest, by going to work and earning money on which we pay tax.
You are too intelligent to believe that reactionary crap. Most protesters are just ordinary people with ordinary occupations. Nearly anyone who wants to badly enough, can find a way to get time off work for something that matters to them.
If I marched for everything I cared about, I wouldn't be able to work a full week, call that "crap" if you want, but that is the reality.
