[ Week 17, Day 1 | Video ]

[ Peter is angry, eyes dark and flashing as he comes on screen, looking furious as he addresses the camera. His hair has been growing in the time that he's gotten here, and it isn't quite long enough to fall over his eyes just yet. A deep furrow is drawn between his eyebrows.

Raising up the paper -- one of the many that has been circulated in the villages, Peter crumples it with one hand. ]

We need to do something. We can't just watch and let this happen. I know some of you are probably thinking that it's not our problem, especially with all the racism and discrimination we've been putting up with. Yesterday, I watched one of us get thrown out of a restaurant and had his money stolen... and these people are treating us like we're... like we're monsters.

But this is worse. Human beings are being... [ Peter's face grows very tense with something like horror. ] sold. Like they're property. Even women and children.

[ The video is shaking a little -- Peter realizes that it's his hand, gripping the Hitomi too tightly. He takes in a slow breath, and then lets it out. ]

But we can't just... walk into this and save them. We need some kind of a -- a strategy, or something. A plan.

[ Because if they're not careful, they can end up making things worse for themselves. ]

Who's with me?

[The response is as immediate as a very, very slow typer is going to manage.]

That's a pretty accurate assessment of the situation. It's definitely a matter that needs something done about it, but rushing will be of little help.

And yes, it's our problem. We also live in this world, what happens in it is inevitably going to affect us.

So yes, I agree.

Not yet.

I'm thinking.

[And she is, but -- she doesn't want this to be violent, and in trying to devise a plan on such a premise, realizes that she's completely entrenched in violence, and has trouble envisioning a course of action completely free of it.

It's not the nicest thing to realize.]

So, basically an aggressive "doing away" with the instigators?

[Still violent. But really, this is hardly a matter where violence can be avoided -- what's happening to the victims of the slave trade is already an act of violence.

And considering the bigger picture of their current situation within Kannagara... considering that, it might not be so bad. Rescuing a few people might, in fact, get them a bit of good reputation. Or it might not, because if the people believe in their prejudices enough, they'll find a way to twist anything to fit their beliefs.

In the end, it doesn't make much difference either way.]

Might be not such a bad approach. Might be the best bet we have.
