To celebrate Veteran's Day, I'm pleased to post these excerpts from Far & Wee #2, "How to Protest the War and Not Look like an Idiot." These pointers will be coupled with an image from my pictorial essay Protest!, which compiles pictures I took from over three years' worth of anti-war protests. Both are available for purchase if you'd like to drop me a line.
1. The police are your friend. Kids today often join the anti-war movement for the nostalgic fight-the-power thrill of it, but police may be the only defense between them and the staunch, self-appointed civil servant ready to bring his beloved War on Terror from the desert to your doorstep. The baton swings both ways . . . sometimes for your own good.
