One million red ribbons against RH Law in the Philippines

No to RH Law in the Philippines

No to RH Law in the Philippines

In a few days, Pres. Noynoy Aquino will sign the RH Bill into a law. It appears that there is no way that this bill can be stopped from being signed. So maybe we need a rallying symbol in the battle against the RH law. So I would like to propose the logo above. Its design is that of the Chi-Rho sign of Constantine, the sign which was painted on the shields of his armies before the decisive Battle of the Milvian Bridge. According to legends, the Chi-Rho sign appeared in Constantine’s dream with the words, “In hoc signo vinces” or “By this sign you shall conquer”.

The other motivation for the logo is the “One Million Red Ribbons” campaign against the RH Bill. My friends do not like the Aquino symbol of yellow ribbon. The only problem with this campaign is that it was originally made for the HIV/AIDS awareness. So I think it is not a good idea to use the same symbol and campaign name. A modifier is needed: One Million Red Ribbons against RH law. A shorter alternative would be No to RH in PH.
