Roman protests

I found this in my sketchbook from earlier this summer - I was sitting waiting for my friend May at Piazza Venezia and ended up getting caught in the middle of an anti-war demonstration. This is a very quick sketch of some of the poliziotti standing at the ready with their riot gear - they looked almost like statues, or like toy police in their starched blue uniforms. In the end the protesters marched by very peacefully, but it was an interesting spectacle nonetheless.
