Protests are opportunities to grab attention, to crystallize all of the emotion (anger, rage, grief, loss, hope, love) of our everyday into a single image. To tell the story of a people demanding justice against a system that — whether through malice or indifference — has let generations of people with ME suffer, languish and die.  How can we encapsulate such a strong, expansive, powerful message in such a way that those who see it can never forget it?  How can we ensure that people are talking about it tomorrow at work, finding themselves recalling it hours and days later?  How can it make a home in people’s hearts?
