recourse. Currently, there is no recourse so any demand is a hollow gesture.

People must understand the problem first in order for them to come up with solutions. The Declaration of Independence was a list of grievances... 11 years later, the Constitution was the solution.

I feel like a list of demands offers a solution to problems the majority of people do not even quite understand. That is, the problems should be articulated through a prolonged public education campaign and then people, through robust discussion, entrusted with the responsibility of coming up with solutions.
