Artist Rolando Chang Barrero Responds With Warning: "Lest We Forget"


#
LestWeForget
 #LestWeForgetProject by artist Rolando Chang Barrero with the collaboration of Photographer Flávio Iryoda.

Rolando Chang Barrero Artist #LestWeForgetProject came about as a direct result of the current #political climate in the United States and President Donald J. Trump #Policies.
The #LestWeForgetProject is a series of images of people concerned that similarities between the current political climete and those of the past. If you would like to participate contact ActivistArtistA@gmail.com

All participant we invited to choose one or more colored triangles that they felt represented themselves or, a class of people that they were concerned about.



"I am Jewish so I chose the yellow triangle, seeing more and more antisemitism across Europe and even the United States is disheartening, and I think things like this project will shine a light not only on the holocaust, but also help people remember what happened and could definitely happen again. I absolutely love the work you are doing, and that's why I participated!"



Thank you Guy Icangelo for participating in #LestWeForgetProject

I participated in this project because bullies, racists, xenophobes, and haters of every category believe we in opposition will not fight back. As usual, they are wrong. I chose to wear the red triangle which political prisoners were forced to wear in the Nazi concentration camps. I am in awe of the people who were marked this way. Against all odds, they fearlessly opposed government implemented policies that demonized and denigrated human beings, a government that promoted aggressive nationalism over international cooperation, and, a government that dreamt of world domination through force. Sound familiar? Oppose. Resist. No pasaran. - Guy Icangelo​I
