TOLAROIDS: Taking a stand

 “The only weapon that we have in our hands this evening is the weapon of protest. That’s all.”

– Martin Luther King


A collection of moments when citizens decided to stand up for their rights, beliefs, and freedoms. No matter the cause, the place in the world, whether it was a hundred people or a thousand: This is a step forward for a better future, a vocalization of our concerns, it is a human right, one through which we can communicate our needs and through which we can solidarize with others. And this is an important thing to remember in times like this.
