When Protest Works

Today’s news will be full of images of vandalism caused by protesting students as they marched around the country yesterday to give voice to the anger they rightly feel about the cuts to education.

The press will no doubt give a picture of violent protesters and give little mention to police using batons on schoolchildren.

So I thought I’d balance that out with a powerful image taken yesterday.

 It’s an image that says a great deal about the sensibilities of most of the protesters and a great deal more than the mainstream media will be telling you.



Peaceful demonstration can work
