It was an insidious frigid wind that greeted the people as they gathered in Gough Park to express solidarity with the world wide movement of resistance sparked by the "MeToo" and "Time's Up" meems. Amid much horn honking of solidarity people bobbed their signs that ranged from the simple like "No Pierce" to the complex one that read:
"I'm not accepting things I cannot change
I'm changing the things I cannot accept".

The sign above was, I'm told, a response to Trumps "Mexicans are murders and rapists" and the "Shit-Hole countries full of black and brown people" screamed by our racist president.

As people came for a while then fled the cold the body count reached well above 200 of those willing to stand up and be seen and heard opposing the tyranny of our time.
