Freedom Wall II by Thefreedomfighters Freedom Wall II by Thefreedomfighters
The second installment in a three, possibly four part series of self-proclaimed 'Freedom Walls' by ~ r3s3nt
This one, I think, is a bit less dubious than the first, though I did include Che Guevara, which I'm not gonna remove this time. It's silly to bicker over Che Guevara when I put Ho Chi Minh on the first one, anyway.
'Pretty Boy Floyd' does not mean the band.
I think there are more Americans on this one than the last one.

This is a really cool idea i really liked it. I am glad you did include Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, for he stood for what he believed in when no one else would, isn't that what a revolutionary is supposed to do? Anyways kudos on the deviation, again a great idea.

I dunno about Dillinger and Pretty Boy, I'd say they were just criminals more than anything, though I do love them.

Ever hear or read the "Ballad of Pretty Boy Floyd" by Woody Guthrie?
There is truth in it in that when PBF (Or John Dillinger) robbed a bank, they tore up the mortgage claims for the sole reason of helping the farmers out whose houses would have been repossessed. It is also true that they bought gorceries for the homeless, anonymously, with some of the money they stole. In essence, they were exacting revenge against the opressive capitalist machine in America... which is very much in the spirit of Robin Hood. If you read the factual history of Robin Hood, he was pretty damn violent. There are at least three known instances of Robin Hood beheading his enemies.

I was just kidding, although if you haven't read anything about Louis Riel, i highly reccomend you do, along with that try some Tommy Douglas (brought universal healthcare to Canada) these guys are inspirational.

I actually own the transcripts from the Louis Riel trial (not the originals of course) fascinating to read, better if you take the time to learn about Riel and the Metis.
