I found the image below, of a wounded protester, in an online article about the police intervention at a Denver Occupation rally yesterday. The continued use of force, in this case rubber bullets, at these peaceful protests shocks and upsets me. I used 99 copies of the wounded arm below to create the balloon above. When the police take forceful action against a person’s free right to speech, they are wounding all of our voices by creating public fear that may prevent us from demonstrating. It is important to let go of this fear and to rise peacefully against the forces that are trying to silence us.
