There's so much creativity on demos in this case HMS No War, Manchester 2003 when a Stop the War demo joined with an anti-BBC demo with a sit-down outside the local BBC. Blair complained of BBC bias against him, we complained of their pro-Government reporting & their virtually total lack of any reporting of the peace movement (except on Feb 15th when sheer numbers gave them no option).

It echoes the eye taking the photo.
