Dorli Rainey, Covered in pepper spray, the 84-year-old woman looks both shaken and determined as she walks through the crowd at the Occupy Seattle protests
Dorli Rainey, 2012, Supports Jill Stein, candidate for POTUS
"The Occupy movement now has its iconic image of martyrdom. November 2011. ... Occupy activist Dorli Rainey, 84, after being hit with pepper spray during a protest in Seattle. Photograph: Joshua Trujillo/AP. ... She was "only" pepper-sprayed. But she happens to be 84, and photographer Joshua Trujillo happened to be on hand to take a haunting photograph of her reddened eyes and shellshocked expression that subtly and strongly portrays Rainey as a modern martyr."
It inspires me to see the young marching, picketing, expressing grievances, and taking stands for justice. Memories flood me of 1960s struggles. Some of us older champions for peace and justice can only cheer them on, even as this beautiful 84 years old woman stands with Occupiers.
