In this particular article, I have accumulated and exhibited photographs that were taken during displays of activism via public protests, being a favoured and growing expression of civil, and at times uncivil, resistance or disobedience. In 2019, such displays were active all over the globe. From Hong Kong, South Africa, Indonesia, the Netherlands to France- these mentioned countries only being a few of many handfuls. Lest we forget, which is highly unlikely, the global-scale climate strikes that endure.
Within the images, you will see some protests that were developed in specific countries, yet are supported here in the North West of England- showcasing the symbiotic relationships between the people of varying nations. You will also perceive the feelings of divide between citizens and their government. These feelings are not vague, but rather overtly publicised. Common states during the protests were anger, sadness and disappointment, yet a reoccurring feeling and energy was, and still is, unity. The uniting of individual activists, political organisations, and even supportive passers-by.
