I think that’s what it’s generally done for, activism, for the love of the planet and love of the people. Oh, hang on, my friend has got a good one. (See below.)

Oh my God. Cheesy actions. I would think it would be wussy love things and I want actions to be about anger not wussy.
I react quite badly to the idea. I would do some kind of anti-Catholic religious saint nonsense, that’s not very helpful. It’s terrible hetero coupley nonsense.
The Co-op hearts advertising! They’re using hearts on everything, getting co-ops to....
Let’s think... Activism and Valentines. Maybe activism and healthy living – around heart disease?
Probably world peace and love.
