Democracy Now ~ Russia

Antifa youth, who battle the spread of fascism.
Photograph © Platon.

I lifted this image from a slideshow (with accompanying video interviews) at The New Yorker. Background: "In May, Human Rights Watch brought Platon to Russia to photograph activists." And now the magazine is publishing the work ~ a nice set of portraits (mostly) of people showing great courage under dangerous circumstances.
