They have my attention, Chris...now I am receptive to all sloganidge!
Chris: I too am happy to join them in their exhortations Ray. I stand four square with them, whatever they're on about..
The 60s are still alive...
Chris: Doesn't it make you feel young again Larry!
How cute! No doubt their grandmothers are scratching their heads that it all has to be said again...
Chris: I feel there is an element of frivolity here Elizabeth

I think these girls had their tongues in cheeks, Chris
Chris: Indeed they did Lisl, they do not look SERIOUS to me

I think I miss the point of the acid... I had that one in google translation, I don't know what is worse, a bomb (your dead) or acid (crippled for life).. I might be lost in translation here.
The equal rights is a winner of course.. smile
Chris: Acid refers to LSD, Lysergic acid diethylamide, Astrid, a recreational drug widely available in the 1960s. I do not think these young ladies are being entirely serious however..
I wonder now who will pick up the war sign...or do these two alternate between them all? I much say the acid gal looks like she's turned into a mannequin! I especially like Elizabeth's comment.... (sigh)
Chris: This is protest-lite Ginnie, an homage to the distant past..

Ces jeunes filles ont de bons arguments.
Chris: Yes they do: thank you Martine
Have you travelled back in time?
Chris: Yes I have, I'm just off to a Bowie concert..

Not the usual revolting protesters. Don't we have equal righst for women? I heard something about them being allowed to vote.
Chris: Oh surely not!

Interested in your comment to Bill; I've just heard that David Bowie has died.
Chris: Indeed. I am in shock today and feeling VERY OLD..
Can you still buy acid.
Chris: In batteries?
The parents prob. said, " Go out and protest something like we did. I think there are some of our old signs in the attic."
Chris: Yes - keeps 'em off the street
I think of those women who have had acid thrown in their face Tiff, careful what you wish for I say.
Chris: I wish I hadn't said it Chad

Hmm, seeing these two ... We used to say, make babies not bombs. The girls back then didn't dress so flashy and usually had a daisy in the hair.

Equal rights for women? Surely we don't want them to be as ugly as blokes, so blokes will become beautiful to equalise? I can only see problems on the way forward, should this equality is taken too far.
Chris: These girls are going to take a lot of cogitating over Louis
It does actually beg the question regarding what they are actually protesting about.
Chris: I suspect nothing at all Brian, in reality I expect they live soft pampered lives..
Surely dropping acid on people wouldn't be a good idea? smile
Chris: No Tom, it wouldn't..

They seem to have a choice of signage Chris
Chris: I suspect they are trying to emulate their mothers or aunts back in the olden days Anne..
i love the beautiful protesters and their messages Chris... but i haven't heard much about acid since the 60's....petersmile
Chris: I don't think I have either Peter..
Silly girls, acid drops are fine but sherbet bombs are better.
Chris: Ooh yes!!
