Purple Rain Protest

by Helen

There was a Purple Rain Protest in the apartheid years in South Africa.  During the Cape Town protest, the Police turned a water cannon filled with purple dye on the protesters to mark them out for easy arrest later. One of the protestors climbed on the canon and turned it away from the people and sprayed the dye all over the city centre buildings turning them purple. My blog post gives more details and shows other pieces I made for this challenge.
