International Mother F*ckers!
On Thursday 25th November 2010 I organised a workshop in NCAD to bring artists together to make creative and funny placards to hold in public. Due to further austerity measures that are about to be imposed by the EU, IMF and the Fianna Fáil government in Ireland, there are a lot of protests taking place here.
Against this background of universal broo-ha-ha, I thought it would a worthy contribution to make placards that can transcend ideology, placards that give hope, or simply placards that might make people laugh for a minute in this dark time.
The group that created some fifteen placards on that day agreed to meet up on Saturday 27th November to take part in a large demonstration against the cuts, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. Here are pictures from that demo, featuring the placards we made.
