Watch For Uprising!


Just a few of the signs from Saturday's rally. I really like the yellow one. Wishing you all a great Monday!

Great shots, Randy. I love that you covered this event. Can you direct me to a link that explains more about what was going on?

Have a nice Monday!

I don't like that sign, it's a call for violence. It seem to me that these guys have absolutely no idea what an uprising is and how it may end. Not well, usually.

Buenos y soleados días por aquí abajo, en Andalucía. Como siempre un placer pasar por aquí... Gracias por compartir tus cosas con nosotros.

Saludos y un abrazo.

Signs are fascinating, and yes the yellow one is great.
I like your protest shots.

That yellow sign is quite eye-catching!

Great shot Randy!

I wish that for your country and for all the world. Yellow is the energy colour.

Solidarity! The yellow sign certainly stands out. Makes me wonder when the raised fist was first used as a protest symbol?!

Sharon said...

Very interesting signs.

becky said...

I know it was a peaceful rally, and I know the symbology of the fist... but the fist in in that sign looks so angry (red), and while people have every right to be angry... wouldn't it be great if we could work out our all of our differences in a non-violent manner? Just dreaming...
I like the chile lovers for cheese heads better. :)

I like the shot, the yellow is on evidence! And it seems you're tall enough to get a good capture! ;-)
But the fist signs can have a double meaning, they can be strenght, but they can be a call for violence too...

Magpie said...

I think people need to let the government know they're not happy and I believe in the power of demonstration. Just hoping there's no violence. Very thought (comment) provoking posts, Randy.

According to marketing wisdom, yellow + red is the color combination to attract attention... interesting photo.

It will be interesting to see how far these protests spread. I think no nation can feel this cannot happen in its country.

I've been doing my homework and now know a bit more about what's happening in Wisconsin (but it seems other states are trying the same thing, like Ohio for instance but I digress). This is great AND it's true also for quite a few Mediterranean countries at the moment...

Photohunter said...

A beautiful yellow accent, I hope it was a peaceful demonstration.

It seems there are protests everywhere now. Good capture of the mood at this one!

Halcyon said...

Love the signs! I should make one for solidarity purposes. :)

youth_in_asia said...

nice work. These events always bring out the best characters.

Jack said...

I think VP and becky are right to caution about violence. Yes, I also admire the strong color, but I worry about the messae. The strength of this country is that we nearly always work disagreements out peacefully.

Watch for the uprising.... the people the fear of all administrations, when money flows to wallstreet and not to main street, blood flows on the street.
not my line... ;)

Dawn said...

I'm thinking I should get a sign like that for my house. When I'm in a mood- everyone will be pre-warned;)

Quite the discussion of comments.
I just think it's neat you got the picture.
Have a great new week.

First Tunisia, now Santa Fe!

JM said...

Great capture! The yellow sign is truly eye-catching.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Nice to see folks fighting the good fight in Santa Fe, too! The corporatists are killings us!
