Freedom of expression speech is assumed as the only channel of expression, but art also plays a big role in it. Political revolutions tend to have beliefs and stand for a particular cause that the people concerned are willing to die for. Revolutionist should have a symbol or an art figure that represents this cause, which tends to motivate and keep them focused on the eventual cause of their struggle. Noam’s face which is used as a symbol by Iran activists represents anger and suffering which people find familiar. The result of the picture is Iranians in the dark of night shout slogans imitating Noam’s scream in darkness. The visual representation that these people look for is mainly found in the street from artists who feel aggravated by the prevalent conditions that affect them, which they transform into art. In many revolutions where people fight against their oppression, the Che Guevara portrait is common in many flags of the revolutionary organizations. This is a symbolic representation of Che Guevara’s struggles against oppression, which he succeeded in the end. Street art is not only used in showing the struggle, but also there are those that show a new day will come where action will be taken and the oppression will end (261). In a revolution, the people reclaim control of infrastructure, national resources, social amenities from the governing body. In Tunisia, street art was elemental in reclamation of public spaces where the oppressed were given an opportunity for them to express themselves.
