Wearing the national colors of El Salvador’s football team and wrapped in the flag of the USA these two marchers neatly personify the dual personality of most of the marchers. I like the repetition of the two lead guys. I like again the symbols of the USA and the position of the Capitol Building. I like the way this image straddles the duality of the protesters their love of their old countries and their embrace of the new but their hostility to the rules and power of the State is also implied by their clenched fists facing the Law Makers down the Mall.
