I'm getting more involved with a Gonzo geography project in parallel with a group in Aberystwyth protesting about the demolition of their day centre to make way for a shopping mall development, including a Tesco. What particualry draws me to this protest is the absurdist ethic of justice in play. The group turn out every week - the day centre has already been knocked down, there is no battle left for them to win... Nevertheless, they continue to point out the injustices they and others have suffered to make way for Tesco et al. Every Saturday they are rewarded by people in passing cars tooting their horns. Lately, an ad hoc performance art collective have been turning up to decorate the 8ft wooden fence around the Tesco site with graffiti, consulting with the protesters about images, poems, slogans etc. The council, whom the protesters blame for the development, instigated a community art project to decorate the fence, employing an artist. The protesters rejected this act of recuperation and letters in the Cambrian news have pointed out that there is already a community art project! See my facebook page for more photos etc.
I am he as you are he as you are me, and we are all together
What's going on?
A story, essay, lyric or rhyme with no reason almost every day...
