When we started the hunt for placard makers, we hoped one or two might have taken photos of the placards on the demonstration. The odd snap, say.
So far though, documenting has proven the norm - not just at the march but in making the placards too. From Rita's video to Iain's photocopied hands.
The placards are all beginning to take on their own histories.
Continuing the trend is March For The Squeezed Bottom, the placard made by Katherine, Susie and Misty from London.
Like the other placards it was an impromptu number. As Misty explains, "We didn't buy anything special, but improvised using a piece of cardboard from an old box, which we covered in flipchart paper and attached to a broom handle."
"Everyone helped to make the placard.
"Susie came up with the slogan - inspired by the idea that the poor would be the ones who would lose out most by the cuts. There's been a lot of talk about the 'squeezed middle' but we were concerned about the impact of what was happening in areas such as Tower Hamlets where Susie works with community groups.
"Lots of poor parents and families stand to lose the lifelines that make life tolerable, like children centres.
"Katherine drew the lettering on the placard. Then Susie and Misty coloured in the letters and helped to decorate it with sticky dots and stars. Making the placard was quick and fun - very much a team effort. Done on the spur of the moment.
"We wanted to celebrate the fun that can be had through demonstrating, as well as to reflect the British sense of humour, to create something memorable and appealing, and to make people smile.
"It was a very exciting day.
"This wasn't about individual profit or gain. It was about our society providing services for people who need them."
