In an interview given that momentous weekend by our eventual founder Brother K, he declared to the renowned intactivist videographer/photographer James Loewen that:
The bloodstain is the most powerful symbol I have ever seen for a protest movement in modern day America. Its power derives from its exact representation of the wound that lies under the clothing. We’re revealing it to the world, an intimate violation of another human being’s body.
After the AAP convention, Brother K returned home to California, convinced that his future protests would be most effective and powerful in, what we called at the time, “a bloody suit.” No stranger to solo protest, on November 3, 2012, he prepared his own stained suit and headed out to a lone wolf demonstration outside the annual convention of the Association of American Medical Colleges being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
