we must stand unbroken, unbound & unashamed (this is what democracy looks like)

Design stolen from some left-wing poster I found on the internet & a quote from Johannes Anyuru, one of my favourite poets.

It was a time when we actually thought that another world was possible, that things not only could, but would change. I sort of feel like I need to be reminded of that feeling sometimes.

When stitched, it looks something like this:

In times like these, it feels good to listen to someone singing that hospital closure kills more than car bombs ever will.
