as for the photo itself, i took this at a rally in london, managing to backlight the placard with a flare that someone had lit, hence the crazy fire and smoke and sparks! (obviously used the flash too, or the placard wouldn't be nearly so bright - and thank god for exposure bracketing!!)
"I never have, I never will
Pledge allegiance to their flag
You're getting used, you'll end up dead!
You've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government?
Die for your country? That's shit!"
Anti-Flag - You've Got To Die For The Government
Please note: I am Australian. The quote is not mine. I just think it is an awesome song that sits well with the image. Although Australia doesn't play a big part in the American government, America does in ours. Please don't judge myself or this piece if you disagree with that.
