Silent Protest

I was in the city today while a protest was coming down Queen Street. Quite different to most street protests, there was no chanting, singing or any noise at all. It was a silent protest (to the extent about a quarter had even put tape across their mouth).

The reason for the protest was the new Electoral Finance Act which basically puts limits on peoples freedom of speech when it comes to political parties. I try and stay away from politics to I will let the pictures do the talking.

I hear ya! Staying away from politics is the way to go. But, I love the "silent" protest!!! It seems to make a HUGE statement
