SimpleBelow are some easy to produce B/W placards for protest actions in support of refugees this weekend.
You can print them easily on A4 paper on a home printer. The designs have been cut in half so you can place the upper and lower halves together to make a larger sign. So 2xA4 for each design to make an A3 size sign.
Or, just grab a print ready pdf of all of the posters - whole. You can print them any size up to A1 size with enough quality. DOWNLOAD A PRINT READY PDF OF ALL THE POSTERS
Print and glue on cardboard... add a stick for a high tech version. Or do a Vivienne Westwood... print at A4 size, pop in an A4 plastic sleeve and safety pin it to your a clothing.

Of course, the road is long, but the struggle to shift opinion has to start now."
