The banner is seen from behind and has a picture of a venus women’s symbol, with a peace symbol in the circle, surrounded by sun rays or flames. The writing is backwards, and if forwards, would read ‘Rise peaceful women’]

Awful news. Poly Styrene of X Ray Spex has died of cancer, aged just 53. An absolute hero to me, and I’m sure to a lot of other women whose introduction to feminism came through punk. http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2011/apr/26/poly-styrene-dies-aged-53?INTCMP=SRCH
