One way to make point – without staying away

REGARDING the proposed mass boycott tomorrow, it has been suggested by WOW (Women’s Ordination Worldwide) that those who wish to show a visible sign of discontent might wear a green armband on the day.

This might suit those who don’t wish to stay away.

At least it will show support for each other in the event of Rome ignoring the protest. My husband and I plan to do this.
