Bridges, Not Walls

The inauguration of President Trump seems like a long way from Hay, but protests about some of the things he's said have been held across the world, including in Brecon, where about 50 people gathered to hang banners from Llanfaes Bridge. The slogan Bridges, Not Walls (or Pontydd nid Waliau) relates to Trump's assertion that he wants to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

One of the organisers, Grenville Ham of the Green Party, said:
"This demonstration is show that we are more interested in building bridges rather than walls. This is an opportunity for people of all persuasions to come together and show that they do not believe in intolerance, division and hatred. Bridges Not Walls is a chance to say what you want, in your own words, but as part of a bigger collective project."

What a pointless exercise by a few dozen middle class lefties. As if anyone was listening to them!
