I’ll write more about the March for the Alternative during the week but wanted to feed back in the immediate aftermath.
As arranged I attended with some friends and our intentions of meeting up with a larger group were scuppered somewhat by not being able to find the group we had intended to join. Still we found people to march with and the atmosphere was cheerful, very friendly and good spirited. There were families and pensioners and everyone in between. Very far from the typical ‘troublemakers’. These were people who cared about the society they live in and wanted to show it. That was community. That was a voice. I marched along people I believed in and who believed in me and the work we do and need to do to create a better, a ‘bigger’ society. I was very proud to be there.
I started a flickr account for my photos to keep them distinct from my personal flickr account but go and have a look at the pictures.
I’ll leave you with one of my favourite banners.
