V for Victory


Now that government brutally crackdown on protests, protests have moved to a new level, spraying on walls and writing on paper currency are among them. Following photos are from a young couple who share their dreams in better tomorrow with protesting hand in hand. She takes photos as soon as he finishes spraying on wall.

It reads: "V Mousavi"


It reads: "V Death to dictator"


I manipulate a little of V for Vendetta to explain the V in photos:
The V stands not for victim, villain, vengeance, vendetta or vaudevillian. This V is a vestige of the “vox populi” has been vacant, vanished but now vivified. It is a verdict vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. It stands for Victory held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

  1. I like the notion of messages on paper currency. Americans should have done the same the first time Bush stole election--never mind the second. Thank you for sharing the pictures.
