Çapulcu Fashion!

When Agent L goes rioting, she prefers slightly below the knee length dresses in breathable fabrics, a denim jacket or cardigan, and a pashmina to wrap around her face. Çapulcus in general do not seem to agree with my sartorial protest vision, but I’ve really been digging the headgear, and I think you will too, so here is my photoblog on Çapulcu fashion.

(note: all of these photos were taken with express permission. It’s a dicey thing, taking pictures at a protest. People have been detained, and have even disappeared after being recognized from police camera footage. About four comrades flat out refused to be photographed, even though they were very well covered.)

This is good for running out for a quick errand, which is, in fact, what she was doing. (Does scouting for cops count as an errand?)
