The face of revolution
 
We used to able to pick out the face of revolution, from the 60’s activist to the “Che “ beret wearing guerrilla. But now it is much more difficult, the “occupy” or counter culture revolutionist looks like you or me; all ages, all genders, there is no uniform anymore and no working occupation associated with expressing ones anger or revolt ion, at events or situations that have been so intolerable even grandma’s are willing to risk arrest. You can do it part-time, on –call, so finally everyone can participate! Has it become so common that it is regarded as fashionable to have a cause? Have we become so desensitized to the coverage of another mob protesting against another institution, that the message is lost? Sometimes I fear, what could be next for groups to garner attention, to jump onto the front pages. I miss the romantic vision of the urban guerrilla, who is so easily identifiable and makes a great T-shirt logo.
