Its been a turbulent year

Apparently, there is a Chinese proverb that says – may you live in turbulent times. Or maybe it doesn’t but the last 12 months has been a solid demonstration-fest as the country splits and disagrees about everything. I realised today that I have covered umpteen demos, marches and protests.

Its only March and I have already been to 2 major demos – who knows how many more there will be this year.

I guess the demo year really started with the Anti-Trump demo

Trump Demo July 18

Then on the next day there was the Pro-Trump Demo

And to add to the mix there was the Anti-Pro-Trump Demo

Union Anti Racism Demo July 18

Then to add into the mix on the same day there was the Anti-Fa Anti-Trump Demo

Anti-Fa Demo July 18

And then when you thought that this had all been too exciting there was the People’s March anti-Brexit Demo

People's Vote March London Nov 18

It all went quiet over Christmas and then the demonstration anger kicked off again in March with the People’s March Mk2

People's March - 23/3/19
People's March - 23/3/19
People's March - 23/3/19

And finally – and only so far. Was the Pro-Brexit demo on the 29th March.
