A New Symbol Of Worldwide Protest

May I suggest, in this time of trouble and worldwide protest, a new symbol for the resistance. An open hand, fingers spread wide. This hand will symbolize our new openness. Symbolically it will show we have no weapon and most importantly it will show our determination and readiness to grasp and hold the power that all levels of business, finance and government attempt daily to keep from us. Wherever people gather be it the G20, Bilderberg, Greece, Ireland, China, may we all raise our open hands in defiance of the powers that be.
Raise your hand for freedom! Raise your hand to question authority! Raise your hand for peace! Raise your hand for proper food! Raise your hand for clean air and water! Raise your hand for the poor! Raise your hand for the middle class! Raise your hand for the indigenous people of the world! Raise your hand and say "I do NOT accept your wars! I do NOT accept your oppressive regime!" Raise your hand and say "I do NOT accept your police brutality and your attempts to install oppressive regimes in free countries!"

"True power can only be grasped with an open hand." Raise not your fist. Raise your hand.

Please spread this post as far and wide as possible.


  1. Ahhh Bladerunner, if only it were so easy! I might be more inclined to raise a finger, but lately I'm inclined to believe we are powerless to change that which must happen.

    These times have been prophesied and we are of the generation that will be witness to the truth of the prophecy, kind of cool actually!


  2. I intend this as a symbol for all of us who are fed up with the lying thieving powers-that-be. A way to relate to one another and to let them all know we can and will stand together against evil and corruption. Winning is not the issue, defeat of the status quo is not going accomplished over night but we can and must resist. The hand should be the living symbol of our resistance.

  3. Sadly, and open hand hasn't helped the people of Syria or some other nations (Yemen for example). carrying no weapons and having an open hand doesn't seem to resonate with those carrying guns. one day...one day...

    1. Interesting that the Cypriots have started to use this symbol.
