This picture was taken at one of the most recent protests in NYC. More so, the purpose was to shed light on the current social issues influenced by political alterations. What I believe most embraces the word “resistance” is the fist(s) of all the people standing in the image. A fist represents the unwillingness to stand hand in hand with someone who they do not approve or agree with. A fist not only means an act of resistance but anger. It speaks of the refusal to accept things as they are but to fight the opposing force. Naturally, the fist has become a symbolism of strength. Not only so, the other movements including the megaphone and the girl chanting in the back depict a strong effort to be heard.
