Protest Action, circa 1980


More goodies from the box of old photographs. I'm guessing that these were pictures that my Dad took, sometime back in the 1980s. I'm dating it based on the prevailing hairstyles and on the placards protesting "salvaging."

"Salvaging" was the word then in vogue for murders committed by the military or the police. Apparently, it's a bastardization of the Spanish "salvaje," or wild. Nowadays, we use the term "extrajudicial killing."

Sad to see how things change so very little.
