You can't kill the protest.


I'm trying to do these every weds. I knew I was going to be busy for the holidays, so I had to put this together pretty quickly last Thursday. Sometimes the pieces that take the least amount of time are the ones you like the most. The inspiration came from an Anti-Flag song(lyrics below). Hope you all had a good Holiday and have a Happy New Year. Keep fighting.

Sawed my feet at the ankles, but I wasn't going to run
Grabbed my face, sliced off my tongue
Lock off each hand at the wrist
So I can't raise my fist!

You can kill the protestor (can't kill)
You can't kill the protest
You can murder the rebel (murder)
You can't murder the rebellion

Lying still now, no way to speak. Nothing to fear, bullets can't silence ideas!
