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
Then on the next day there was the Pro-Trump Demo
And to add to the mix there was the Anti-Pro-Trump Demo
Then to add into the mix on the same day there was the Anti-Fa Anti-Trump Demo
And then when you thought that this had all been too exciting there was the People’s March anti-Brexit Demo
It all went quiet over Christmas and then the demonstration anger kicked off again in March with the People’s March Mk2
And finally – and only so far. Was the Pro-Brexit demo on the 29th March.
