to stop this madness.

The government can't ignore it if there

are enough people on the streets.

So how do we get people out?

How do we get people out of their

homes and marching with us?

You back there.

Well, girls?

Haven't seen you here before.

What do you say?

Do you think the politicians

will listen to us?

In my...

In my dream I heard

the warning.

"You have three

minutes left," it said.

"Go and tell the others.

Tell the others now. "

How could I not

suspect something?

You're never here.

I'm here now.

- Tell me.

- For God's sake.

"Tell the others now,

this morning. "

Don't tell me what's enough.

Oh, God, Natalie!

Or... Or you...

"Or you soon...

will all be dead. "

"Or you soon will all be dead. "


What on earth is that crucifix

doing round your neck?

Rosa and I went to church.

- Church?

- Once.

She wanted me to.

You do realize that

God is an invention.

Sort of.

Every man needs to struggle

for his own authority, Ginger.

For autonomous thought.

Which is why you mustn't

listen to a word I say.

Well, exactly.

I autonomously decided

to go to church with Rosa...

to see what it's like.

- It's a bit kitsch.

- Rosa gave it to me.

Did she now?

What was it like?

It was sort of exciting,

like going to the theater.

Then we went to a meeting.

- What kind of meeting?

- Ban the bomb.

That's my girl.

See, you're an activist,

not a supplicant.

But don't you think...

you know, people need

something to believe about...

what happens when you die?

The concept of life after

death is a superstition...

designed to keep people happy with

their limited existence in the present.

The only life is the

one we have now...

which is why we must seize it...

and live while we

have the chance.

Good point.
