These lemons represent people caught in the stranglehold of dictatorship and war. At first, this lemon population was harshly repressed for having demanded the rule of law, peace, freedom and progress. Unfortunately, democracy is usually won only through sacrifice, sorrow and bloodshed. But in the end, a ray of light breaks through the wall of oppression and the lemons achieve freedom as democracy lights their way toward greater liberty and justice. This video piece is a message of encouragement to peoples who have taken up the struggle for democracy.
