Boats, Bills and and Boris the Bank Engine
You wouldn’t think we’re out of practice!
Across three cities yesterday, rebels poured onto the roads in carnivals of creativity and disobedience. We’ve only just begun, but what matters is we’ve found the magic once again: parents and their children, teens and retirees, so many people, beliefs and backgrounds, all coming together in a sea of colour, love and empathy.
In Cardiff, things went vertical with climbers on Welsh government roofs opening proceedings for a day of drums and flags.
In London, rebels occupied Parliament Square for a day of disruption, education and dance. Significantly, the day ended on newly agile terms: no site-defending, but an organised dissipation. We’re sure the Met are just as curious as we are to find out what happens next!
