Toon against Trump

In Newcastle to protest against the dividing of the world by nationalisms, racial origins, religious views by Donald Trump. The placards and posters raised above heads, fully reversible in many cases, danced to slogan chants and microphone rants. Reassuring that a good number surrounded the monument in The city centre, including some students who recognised me from a previous school, holding up a cardboard sign which had been made in their art room earlier. Art departments foster active democracy…….but worrying that the future for young creatives is one of dead barriers, borders and prejudices rehabilitated.
