Protest – Two Stories

June 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

I headed straight to the Drum ‘Em Out BP protest after work. (A little intro video for you here.) How I ended up in the front row of the samba band, I’m not sure, but it was good fun all round. Great how music always negates any aggression or tension, though some cringe moments could have been avoided. (I swear, when I next organise a protest, we’ll have a fashion vetting process.)

On returning with a severely damaged wooden spoon and a heavily beaten salad bowl, I discovered this gem – Apologize to BP. Naturally, it’s already all over twitter. Some classics already include:

Dear BP – I’m sorry for not appreciating the way oil slicks have little rainbows in them #imsorrybp

Dear BP – I’m sorry for worrying about gas mileage. It was selfish of me #imsorrybp

Protest takes many forms – anger, humour, tears. We need them all.
