Yesterday, a few dozen men and women gathered at the Marnixplaats to make a symbolic gesture against violence. As an act of non-violent protest and inspired by the Standing Man on Taksim sqaure in Istanbul’s protests, they all stood in silence and watched the sun go down.  It was lovely to see and so serene on this busy square filled with hip café’s and restaurants making people turn their heads and ask what this was about.
