An orchestra wears ribbons to reject its conductormain
These are musicians of the symphony orchestra of Seville.
They are wearing green ribbons to signify their rejection of the conductor Pedro Halffter, whose tenure was renewed by the political authorities against their expressed opinion.
But Halffter, who has led Seville for 10 years, has the political machine sewn up. He wins. The musicians lose.
All they can do is wear ribbons.
