In the last couple of years we have seen a worldwide increase in protest. Sometimes it looks like the world is tumbling into a state chaos. Mass
protest and acts of civil disobedience show us glimmers of hope.
To me the recent spate of protests can be linked back to the mega dump by Wikileaks. After the site got Ddos by the US government many sprung to WLs
aid and defense. Such was the origin of the First Cyber War. Many battles ensued and battles are still ongoing.
Further protests ensued with the lighting of the Arab spring. This movement started in Tunisia. Wikileaks along with social media sights played an
important role in igniting the fuse. This protest was both analog and digital in nature.
More recently we say the emergence of the occupy protests. At one point there where over 1000 protest worldwide at the same time.
With the collapsing of the banking system many of these protests turned more ugly like what is happening in Greece and Spain. Governments are
collapsing and there is anarchy on the streets. It is worth noting that all the above protests have been supported by Anon.
I want this thread to not be about the rights and wrongs of activism but more about the graphical side. It is more a celebration of protest through
artistic and graphical form.
So anyone with any pictures of protest or art of protest not necessarily limited to the above. Please feel free to post....
I will start with this. If I remember correctly it was taken in Canada
Not sure where this was taken looks to me like OWS -USA.
Taken in Egypt after the army had been sent in to remove the protesters.
