Pigs Are People Too by tanya-n Pigs Are People Too by tanya-n

Anti-war protests, London

I'm not too sure what point this guy was trying to make, but being the pig fan that I am, I had to take a picture.

he has a police helm on his head.. so i think he wants to say :The policemen are filthy pigs but we should nevertheless treat them like people.
Or just : Police sucks

usually i'm not a big fan of photos of protest signs, because it's usually the photographer making the subject do all the work of being witty, etc. but this one is great. the anonymous finger coming in from the side really adds a meaningful punch and makes the photo work for me. great shot.

Hehehe, I like how funny this is and you didn't even realise how funny it was. I thought everyone knew police were reffered to as pigs (chief wiggum from the simpsons has a snout for example?) Anyway, the fact that you saw a good photo and took it reguardless of a deep understanding of the subject matter shows that you are quite a good photograhper. Perfect timing and composition.

Seeing as how he's wearing a police helmet, he's probably mocking the legal system.

Awesome picture outside the National Gallery. <3

I'm almost certain this man is trying to say that People act like pigs. Have you ever heard the phrase "The pigs of war"? George Bush is no human, he is a pig. Anyways, Great capture. I love this shot. :]

It's likely he was trying to say that, yes. I personally think it's an insult to pigs to compare them to humans! Thanks a lot for your comment : )
