Photographer's Note

I posted an image of the statue of Pushkin, in this Square, some weeks ago. I crossed this area around three times and I ever found a people making a protest there. This place became a famous point of protests in Moscow since the 1980's decade and few days before I arrive in the city there was a crowd protesting against distortions in the elections in Russia.
In the first time I visited this square there was a gentleman there with a sign and when I passed there at last time I found this lad protesting against climatic troubles. I was in the other side of the street, very far, but I was frightened about troubles with police and used my camera zoom to get this image. At each day I saw a police car few meters far from the people, taking care of the protest. I presume the people with posters were making a relay, with a different people at each day. What I guessed interesting was the sadness in the face of the guy showing as he was concerned about the trouble.
Of course each one of us can be a witness how the climate was changed since we were a child compared with today. I guess the idea of disposable is one of the pillars of the trouble, but there are others like the use of fossil fuels, deforestation, etc...

Postei uma foto da estátua de Pushkin há algumas semanas e que fica nessa mesma praça. Passei por essa praça umas três vezes e toda vez havia alguém ali protestando. O local se tornou ponto de protestos desde a década de 1980 e poucos dias antes de chegar a Moscou havia um protesto enorme contra a manipulação das eleições na Rússia.
Na primeira vez que passei pela praça havia um senhor segurando um cartaz e dias depois encontrei esse rapaz protestando lá contra o aquecimento global. Eu estava do outro lado de uma larga avenida e estava com medo de arrumar encrenca com a polícia e usei o zoom da minha câmera para tirar essa foto bem distante.
Toda vez que eu passava havia um carro da polícia ao lado das pessoas que protestavam, controlando a situação. Acho que os que protestavam faziam revezamento. O que achei curioso foi a intensa tristeza nos olhos do rapaz, creio que ele estava realmente preocupado com o tema. Obviamente todos nós podemos notar como o clima mudou desde que éramos crianças até os dias de hoje. Creio que a ideia do descartável é um dos pilares do problema, mas existem outros como o desflorestamento e o uso de combustíveis fósseis.
