my favourite protest placard is the one that had 'Buck Fush' written on it at an anti-war march in Jozi about three years ago. will dig around for pics and post to the johannesburg blog.

@zahira:
excuses, excuses:P

@bb-aisha:
it was suprisingly well attended! the world is gone mad.. wat we going to do? hopefully not nothing...

@moe:
cool man. its a difficult one- between commemorating the past with government and others;
or standing together with those who are still suffering. something i grappel with, even though it may seem so obvious...

@saaleha:
there were lotsa cool ones at the anti-war marches.
i remember being on tv once with this paper rocket going through my head, shouting at the top of my lungs, 'Burn the flags, burn the flags'! -memories, some say of a misspent youth!
but the struggle continues...
