Creative Signage

Today I attended a rally on immigration issues. Alas, I did not have my camera to get pictures of some of the wonderful signs. They included “Immigration is a Feminist Issue,” “Immigrant Rights are Human Rights” and many–aimed at Wells Fargo–about divesting from the privatized prison-industrial complex.Related to that was a broken heart with a dollar sign dividing the parts.

There was a blond woman whose sign read “I’m a first generation immigrant, but don’t get hassled. Is it because I don’t have ‘the look’? Wie sind die 99%.” There was another similar with the last line in French.

My favorite was a person who appeared to be panhandling, seated on the sidewalk. Sign said “Keep your money; I want change.”
