Rise - Night Version by yuumei Rise - Night Version by yuumei

I couldn’t decide which version to draw since each conveys a different atmosphere. The day version focuses more on hope, while the night version focuses more on oppression, so in the end I drew both.

Day Version

~~~Original Description~~~

A scene from Fisheye Placebo.

This image was inspired by a free Breadley Manning protest I participated in. We were a small group of about 20-30 peaceful protesters met by an overkill of riot police. We dissipated peacefully to avoid arrest but the image of facing against a roll of riot police remained in my mind.

For those not familiar with Bradley Manning, he was the one who leaked the Collateral Murder video to Wikileaks. The video details the slaughter of innocent Iraqi civilians and journalists by American soldiers. Amongst the injured were 2 children whose father was killed. When the journalists' families asked about how they were killed, they were lied to. For revealing the true casualties of war, Manning was put into solitary confinement and tortured without trial.

This is brilliant, but you need to update Chelsea Manning's name and pronouns

So apparently these people use this image as the background of an ad-enabled youtube video without crediting you. They do however link to a copy of this image on their facebook page for people to download. I thought you might want to know.

It looks like a piece of art that can be considered iconic.  BTW, I do believe that the riot police were there to control the situation in case the group that you went with resorted to violence.  This protest you mentioned is a prime example of some of our distrust of the government for telling lies.  As a skeptic, I do not always believe in what everyone, including the government tells us; the protest also gives support of the First Amendment right to freedom of the press, even though I do question the type of press that we are given, but I'm not the type of person to yap and complain, I'm more of a silent observer.
