Artistic protest

Not to detract from the reason for the protest, which was held in Santa Cruz on January 20th – surely necessary in this time of economic crisis, when employers look to save money on wages and by making precarious, short-term employment contracts – for rights and dignity in work, but I was also struck by the beauty of the movement of the flags, captured so artistically by Jose Mesa’s camera.
