  Mot et a Buffy fan early on. She's called Rhona, or Rona; forgot to ask how it was spelt. Hope she pops by the facebook page to check out the pic. 


  That's Leah Higgins; organiser of the march. Guy behind her is her mate Callum, who helped and the guy they're talking to, and spoke to us as well, was six years old when he lived through the Blitz in 1940. 
  Leah, btw, turned seventeen the day before. 


  Not sure you can see it properly, but the sign says The Patriarchy is for Dicks. One of my favourites of the day. 


  The only reason the orange excrescence isn't in jail is that he keeps intimidating, and buying off, his victims. Don't leave it until he's almost in his grave; prosecute the fucking ass off him while he can actually feel the punishment. 


  Wish I could have got a Pussy Hat, and I wish I could claim to be a Nasty Woman too; instead of just feeling like I'm stuck being a male who doesn't want to be a Man. 


  Colours remind me of the occasion I was at a rock club in Plymouth wearing a bright green Pakistan cricket shirt and a pair dayglo yellow cycling shorts; nothing else. In a sea of denim; black leather jackets and dresses I stood out like an overactive neon sign going BLERP! BLERP! BLERP! 


  As far as the eye could see behind; just as many in front of me, only I knew where the front was, and there were a good many people  beyond where my eye could see here. 


  We were singing We Shall Overcome hear I think. 

  Finally one I saw while on facebook this morning; from Buenos Aires. 


  Goddess grant us the strength to overcome,

  LIbrary system won't let the petition page load properly, but that doesn't stop me sharing it. I'll just have to wait until I can sign it.

Save Political Prisoner Ildar Didan from Imprisonment and Torture!
Sign Now


Last year, 34-year-old Ildar Dadin made history, but not the encouraging kind. After Ildar held several single-person protests, he became the first Russian citizen imprisoned under a new law that criminalizes repeated public assemblies.

As punishment for Ildar's political dissent, a judge sentenced him to three full years in prison. But now, the situation has gotten even worse. Ildar's lawyer recently smuggled a letter out of prison that Ildar wrote to his wife. In it, he describes being tortured and threatened with death on a daily basis. So Michael started a petition urging the international community to take immediate action to free Ildar from this hell. Sign his petition now!

In the letter, Ildar says he has been beaten as many as four times a day by up to 12 people at once. Guards handcuff his wrists behind his back and hang him from the ceiling by the cuffs. He writes:

"Being suspended in this manner brought about terrible pain in the wrists, twisted out my elbows, and caused horrible back pain. I was suspended like that for half an hour. Then they took off my underwear and said they would bring another prisoner to rape me..."

The European Union and United States have the power to successfully pressure the Kremlin and demand Ildar's release by freezing the assets of officials responsible for his torture. We must send a strong, united message to these governments that the time to act is now.

Sign the petition to save Ildar's life and bring an end to this daily sadistic torture!

Thank you for all that you do,
