Living near protest city (Washington D.C.), there is one every other day and almost all just come and go. There are a few mainstays however, and the guy in the photo above is one of them. His name is Start Loving (really) and what his manifesto is I can’t still don’t know. He usually parks himself in front of the White House everyday, and depending on the week, he has a different cause to protest for and a sign to match. This particular day it was global warming. His face is truly something to behold. He has three large crosses tattooed across his forehead and his name tattooed across both cheeks. I have spoken with him a few times to try and understand what he is trying to say, and the range of topics are anywhere from religion to nuclear arms. I enjoy the fact that whether you agree with them or not, everyone has the right to speak their mind, and trust me, this guy has a lot on his.
