And engraving of the poem by Martin Niemoeller, at the Holocaust Memorial in Boston.
Will there one day be a memorial that says;
"First they came for people of colour,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a person of colour,
then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
then they came for the feminists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a feminist.
then they came for the gay and transgender people,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't gay or transgender.
then they came for me,
and by that time no one was left to speak up."

The Holocaust Memorial in Boston was vandalised again this week, for the second time this year. I went to take photos of the flowers left there in the aftermath of that vandalism and was reminded of why it is so important, in the wake of events in Charlottesville, to oppose fascism in all its forms, to oppose it everywhere, and to oppose it always.
