@2: It's also scientifically accurate to say that no individual lung cancer can be shown to be caused by cigarettes. But we don't have the diagnostic tools to prove that in any case so...what's the point? It just muddies the waters about a clear and present public health threat. Same thing with climate change.

@2: Seriously. How about getting some Jason Moran in there? Or Madlib. Or De La Soul. Or MMW. So many exciting possibilities out there.

What bugs me here as a comfortable middle-class liberal is not who's speaking up but the lack of basic organizing strategy: 1) Identify the objective (specifically--as in what law/policy/rule needs to change), 2) identify who affect that change, and 3) identify what it takes to secure the support of the person(s) who can affect the change. Until those questions are answered no good will come from screaming in the face of some poor guy at a Sanders rally.
