The Protest Gathering – A Stonking Success
Sorry, bit of a late post – Norm decided to 'spring clean' the office. Poof. No fucking idea why, looked fine to me. Obv means pressure on to leave a feather in a really hard to get to place.
Anyway – onto yesterday and the protest gathering – a stonking success all round. Really. Very chuffed indeed.
'5, 6, 7, 8… pigeons, we retaliate!' cooing out across Trafalgar Square – sadly drowned out a bit by a bunch of happy clappies who rocked up. Shame. Also, slightly shitty weather which prob kept the numbers down – like not one Hackney pigeon showed, and they love a good shout out.
Still a top day though. Got Michael's dad along to say a few words. Fuckin' cool. He seriously knows his shit when it comes to protests.
This is Michael's dad saying a few words:
…and here's us lot. Michael's in there, so's Mart's – he's the twat on the left looking at the camera – even Linda and Dicky pitched up.
He gave some pointers on stuff like 'how to manage an efficient and effective fly by', 'organised defecation' – shitting on target, 'structured mass elevations' – taking off together. Cool.
Then, he sorted us into 'breakaway strategy groups' – Mart took this one of my group:
Actor mate Doug ended up in it with me tho, which kinda pissed me off – he was only there for the drama and kept staggering backwards saying stuff like: 'We're all going to die' in a really OTT drama way. Twat. Everyone just ignored him and got on with it.
So – a big massive thanks to all the pigeons who turned up to give their support. Trying to get them to sign the 'Give Pigeons A Chance' petition was a bit of a nightmare tho – not enough of them got access to a PC.
One really really cool thing – made my day – Hoxton Elliot spotted it…
Some dude came down with a Pigeon Blog tote bag! Fucking wicked! That's Elliot in front doing his "er… check out behind me" face.
Anyway – loads to do and I'll obv keep you up to date with what we're up to. We're gonna have Ken licking our feathery butts before you know it!
