Wherever They Are, We Are

The image of the masked protestor, with their fiery eyes and fist in the air is one of the most iconic images in popular culture. This character has become romanticized, demonized, idolized, and oftentimes misunderstood. The upheaval that has taken place around the world, especially in the last four years, has both reinforced and broken this stereotype.

But who are those who take to the streets? Why do they do it? What do they want?

A procession of women in Nigeria, marching together with placards reading “Bring Back Our Girls”, has a considerably different tone than the charged clashes between riot police and anarchists in Greece. A candlelight vigil held by journalists in Lebanon in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo does not have the same risk of deadly violence as villagers and farmers confronting trigger-happy gunmen in Syria. And a group of concerned citizens voicing their discontent with the privatization of a public beach does not have the same high social and political stakes as those trying to overthrow an authoritarian regime.

However, despite vast differences in context and situation, those who take to the streets often share a common drive to stand up for ideas they believe in. For many, there is a common belief that by taking to the streets and making their voices public, they can influence change in their world.

Seaweed Pickers in Peru
Pacasmayo, Peru

Every day local men and women from Pacasmayo (Peru) spread along the shore of the town and wade into the ocean. They are collecting mococho (also called cochayuyo) seaweed. Mococho is used for Peru's traditional ceviche and also for medicine. One kilogram of mocacho is sold for 3 to 4 soles (around 1 dollar). In 2-3 hours men and women can collect between 5 and 20 kilograms. Occasionally they also catch octopuses and use them for ceviche as well.

“It’s quite an easy job and I earn enough to support my family. I spend 3 hours a day working in the ocean and then I can stay with my kids for the rest of the day,” says Claudio, 30, who is doing this job together with his brother Luis for over 15 years. “In the winter we freeze here after a couple hours in the cold water and there is significantly less mococho because of the lower temperature,” says Marilu, 47. “But I don’t complain, I like to spend time in the water,” she adds smiling.

Marilu (47) collects mococho (also called cochayuyo) seaweed in Pacasmayo, Peru. Mococho is used for Per's traditional ceviche and also for medicine.
Marilu doesn't have a mask that would help to see underwater, so she just covers herself from the sun and goes into the water to collect seaweed gropingly. She spends 2-3 hours in the water everyday over 15 years to later sell the seaweed and support her family with three children.
