Some Comrades have wondered why we use the Green Star as the symbol for New Resistance (and for the name of this our news site).
Here’s the meaning of the Green Star from Comrade James P:
“The color Green is very important to New Resistance.
Green is the color of Revolution, of Freedom and of Justice. It is also a constant reminder of our martyred influence the hero Muammar Gaddafi. This is why our star is Green.
The five pointed star has many meanings, here’s a few:
Five for the five fingers of the revolutionary’s hand.
Five for the five continents we hope to see liberated in Revolutionary struggle.
Five for the elements of society we draw our cadres from: the worker, the student, the intellectual, the soldier and the outlaw. For the esoteric minded five also represents man himself (or herself).
The Green Star is certainly not something we didn’t put thought and discussion into or that we chose strictly for it’s aesthetic appeal.”
