Abstract or Description

London, 10th of November 2010, we go to the demonstration against the cuts. The government is going to drastically cut the funding of education, Goldsmiths’ public funding for example will be cut entirely, and the fees could be raised to 9.000 pounds a year. But this is not just a demonstration “against”, it is also a celebration of something, it’s not really clear of what: of finally getting together, of waking up again, of having found each other. People dance, sing, smile, the most fantastic banners and slogans are waving, the sun is shining, there are beautiful colours everywhere, some friends of ours are carrying a huge carrot made of paper-pulp, the carrot that has been promised to us donkeys, placed in front of our eyes to make us run and look straight. “Here is your carrot, take it back, we don’t want it anymore!”
