Sri Lanka Protest: Grid/cross

Here are some pictures I took at a recent protest outside the library against the barbaric slaughter of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. The way the protest banners had this grid or cross shape on the back of them particularly drew my attention. It was a rainy day. I admired the young men and women handing out information via a BBC news story printed up. There was no obvious media presence. The chants were energised but there was a real sense there was no one to listen to them and no vessel through which they’d be heard.
