Every year, from May to September, marksmen’s festivals are held in the Sauerland in Germany. The three-day festivals consist of marches through villages, church processions and dances. The highlight is a shooting competition, aimed at a wooden bird, that determines the new annual King.
The origin of the clubs behind the festivals goes back to the civil defence in the Middle Ages and "for faith, custom and home" became their general motto.
Growing up in a small village and visiting the local marksmen’s festivals since childhood has led me to this personal reflection on the tradition, which started in 2015 and took in 31 festivals.
The jubilee king in Brunskappel, who shot down the bird 50 years ago, has requested that this year the marksmen march the last meters to the hall through the nearby river. This had not happened for several decades.

Just like that woman, and no matter how oblivious to the protest behind her, locals in underprivileged areas in #TripoliLB (and same applies for other parts of the country) have been fully supportive of the national uprising.
