I did not attend the Sanity and/or Fear Rally.
Instead, I went to an animal rights protest. I demonstrated against a pet store that sells puppy mill dogs. I spent a few hours holding signs and handing out leaflets on a cool Fall day with four other women. Here’s a picture of us from a few weeks ago at another demonstration in front of another pet store:
But when I saw some of the signs from the Sanity Rally, I thought the advice was good enough to share. Without further ado, here are your…
top five protest tips gathered from signs at the sanity rally:
3. Feel free to embellish your protest signs with colors and sparkly things. Just don’t go so overboard that your sign becomes illegible.
Example: go naked and wrap your I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur sign around your body.
4. Hold your protest sign correctly.
Example: hold your Stop Animal Experiments sign right side-up.
5. And… check your spelling.
Example: Vegetarians Make Better Lovers (not Vegitarians Make Beter Luvrs)
