Resistance comes in many forms, and sometimes even just standing your ground can be revolutionary. One of the greatest acts of resistance is that of "tank man." An unidentified man stood in front of a column of tanks in Tiananmen Square, Beijing on June 5, 1989, to protest the Chinese government's violent crackdown on the Tiananmen protests from a day earlier. While the official figures were significantly lower, it is believed that at least 10,000 people died on that day. Tank man has never been identified, with rumors claiming he was jailed or killed. It might have been only one man, standing up to one of the most powerful governments, but it was an act of revolution that still inspires across the world. 



 

 

As Russia invades Ukraine, the resistance of the people in the country is inspiring people from all parts of the world to rally for their cause. From donning a yellow and blue dress to expressing solidarity through street art and even showing compassion to the enemy, Ukrainians are standing up for themselves. Leading them from the front is President Zelenskyy who was initially rumored to have fleed the country. He rubbished the claims and posted a video from Kyiv and reassured the people that he was never going to abandon the people. Even as the death toll rises, Ukrainians only seem to be digging their heels in further, displaying great resolve.   

Here are some acts of resistance that we came across, against the war, and in solidarity with the Ukrainians:
