How to Protest the War and Not Look Like an Idiot, part 4

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.

4. Use drama effectively. Ah, like many things in life, it all comes back to Spider-man. I’ve seen protesters use costumes and props to make incredibly moving statements, but Spidey up there? Let’s just say there’s a fine line between using the tools at your disposal . . . and just being one.
