Another image that really comes out is that of a small child standing in the middle of a street with a sign that says: “Stop killing us”. In the photo, taken by Douglas Clifford– in the middle Tampa Bay Times, is seen in the foreground the child with a chinstrap position, but looking at the background you can notice a fire on one side and a policeman watching the demonstration from the height of the other, which gives a deeper meaning to this stunning photo. Also, is photo also represents something that is strongly criticised the protesters, the fact of bringing children to these sites because where they may end up wounded.

In this photo, taken by Alex Brandon of Associated Pressit looks like a protester strip fire-a flag of the united States. While culturally it would be seen as a lack of respect to do this in other countries, in north America, is a symbol of non-conformity and is seen as a right to be able to burn the flag when you’re protesting a situation that is responsible.

It really was an amazing view, and who managed to be captured by the photographer Reuters, Jonathan Ernstwere the protests at the White House, which for many americans is a symbol of democracy.

Finally, it is also impressive the shot that managed to capture the photographer of the newspaper New York Times, Victor Blue, which looks to an officer of the National Guard sent to Minneapoliscrying while repress the demonstrations. For more than your reason for crying is because of what you are ordering to do, or the stress of the situation, it is an image that reflects something that is not always taken into account: the security staff is also made up of humans with feelings, and they affect the things that live and that there are machines of repression.
