Marq Frerichs, our men’s style columnist, has spent hours each day at the G20 site, documenting the protest (and protesters) in words and photos. The following images were taken before the violence started yesterday, and reveal both the creativity and conflict that’s present at the summit. (Incidentally, did anyone check the tags on the clothing that the cowardly Black Bloc protesters left behind when they melted back into the crowd? I’d be willing to bet that it wasn’t organic cotton from a local, independent designer….)
What would a protest be without a zombie?
Face scarves and swimming goggles.
A simple message that was disregarded by a disappointing group yesterday.
The gas mask and hardhat was de rigueur.
A blue wave of calm.
Can a boutonnière bring out the gentlemen?
