I want to create my own on-the-go amplification system. This guy had an awesome set-up. Where does one even get a three-way megaphone-thingie like that?

Besides being on an exceptionally cute dog, I like that this sign doesn’t purport to know this pooch’s political beliefs, as so many of these placard-on-baby-or-dog protest signs do.

"Decolonization is in my heart and my knife"
You probably can’t tell in the photo, but beyond the fence in the background are a bunch of cops, waiting for protesters to unleash whatever is in their hearts and machetes.
Hey extroverts, next time you’re thinking of attending a protest, buy a megaphone. These three protesters were having a blast, calling back and forth with their megaphones. Marches are a lot more fun if you have a way to amplify your voice, but I’d never seen three people trading off like this. Usually one person trades it around until they get tired, or get too nervous about whether or not the crowd will respond. But these three showed that more megaphones = more fun, as their calls felt as much like a jam session as a call to action.

Another photo of the Occupy Oakland general strike, here they are approaching Chinatown.
I never thought to take a drum to a protest, even though they’re an essential element in keeping spirits high. Wouldn’t be that hard to make one, I imagine. Next protest, maybe turn over one of those empty paint buckets and see how it sounds.
Random sign in support of the May Day protest was left outside an apartment building in East Oakland.
Decolonization ship at the May Day protest in East Oakland. I wonder how long it took them to build it.
The protest was very focused on immigrants rights and indigenous peoples’ rights, so this boat fit right in.
