Shaved Heads in Copenhagen
Thoughful

Head shaving as a form of protest seems to be quite prevalent at present.  In terms of grabbing headlines it seems to work, although as someone who does it for aesthetic reasons I’m not sure I feel entirely comfortable with that.  It suggests “Look what I have had to do to myself to get your attention”, which presents a rather negative image.  Nevertheless in this case it is the message that is important.

I can empathize with the despair of the protester, but it would have been better for the sign to at least say something.  Something like “PLANT MORE TREES NOW!” would have been quite good I think.  Anyway the opportunity is now lost.
