Bannockburn 1314 by EthicallyChallenged Bannockburn 1314 by EthicallyChallenged
A very important day for both Scottish history and animal rights activism. During the time of War for Scottish independence, a group of Scots who were ahead of their time in terms of ethics and animal rights issues organised a protest against the exploitation of horses, particularily by the nobility. The protest, initially planned as a peaceful march, turned violent when English knights decided to ride horses around the protestors (one of the earliest examples of trolling in recorded history), eventually provoking them to unhorse one of the knights. This triggered a chain reaction, where protestors managed to liberate a significant amount of horses in a very short time. Note the use of protest signs as weapons. The long poles were usually used during demonstration by sticking the blade into the ground and using a sign atttached to the opposite end to display catchy slogans at about 3-4 meter height. Notice the signs at the Bannockburn protests were missing due to rampant illiteracy in the medieval society.

Awesome! I'd seen this on the magazine cover. Glad I'm seeing it without all the wording covering up details now.
