Chaque révolution a son style!

On my way to work I saw this banner protesting against the IPRED-law,
illegalizing file-sharing, that recently passed in Sweden. (The owners
of Pirate Bay was sentenced to one year in jail and a gazillion crowns
in fines)

The banner looks like a five year old with Tourettes made it. It's
utter rubbish.

A few years ago I bought a book called "Mai 68" at Dover Street
Market. It's by far the most expensive book I've ever bought, but
worth every penny. It was published the same year as the french
student revolution in May 1968 and is a "best of" of the posters that
where created by artists and students during the turmoil in support of
the students, opposing the Government.
The first sentence of the book reads "Every revolution has it's style".

Hot tip to the anti-IPRED dudes:
If you are going to protest, please do so with some style, or do not
protest at all, thank you.
