It was a unique march this August in Bell Square. The banners had no words, neither did the speeches but it was brimming with meaning.
As each protestor carried their blank banners representing the scores of messages collected online earlier to voice protests for personal crusades, the bells of the Trinity church nearby pealed and the hymn ‘The Old rugged cross’ could be heard aptly mirroring the sentiments. Bell Square though was lined up with messages and a few curious onlookers followed the march and stopped by to read the messages which were as varied as ‘Everyone should get presents’ by a 9 year old girl to ‘Muslims are not responsible for everything’.
The blank canvasses although abstract, did elicit more than a cursory glance.
Sometimes, actions do speak louder than words!
THANKS CATHERINE FOR A GREAT CRITIQUE!
