Many of today's movement have made use of a "Mocking jay", a symbol of resistance, often a young girl (like Katniss).

In the hunger games, the mocking jay was largely manufactured by an organisation, minimally organic.

The following thread is a critique
Why is the mockingjay usually a younger female? I think it's because they are seen as the most fragile & innocent demographic. So if she can stand in defiance it makes the masses feel stronger and the 'enemy' look weaker.

This is not necessarily wrong, it depends on the cause.
It also depends on who is behind the Mockingjay, if she rose up organically due to an action she took, or if she was selected for the role.

Yulia Marushevska was a MockingJay for Maidan (young adult women will do to), she was manufactured, very sleek.

If you're wondering how the Palestinian "child" terrorist who stabbed an Israeli to death today was able to aim his knife so well, you have to know that instructions on where to aim are promoted on social media by the likes of #AhedTamimi's mother
And needless to say, whenever a Palestinian terrorist - including teenagers who are then called "children" - succeeds in stabbing a Jew to death, #AhedTamimi's parents &family are jubilant and hail the murderer as a hero.
Here are some more examples of #AhedTamimi's family freely expressing their support for stabbings - and while they were posting this stuff on social media, @hrw & @amnesty fully supported them.

Reminder: #AhedTamimi's mother and other Tamimi family members celebrated this murder publicly on Facebook, praising it as an act that 'restored honor' to the Palestinian cause.
This is the Facebook post of the Tamimis celebrating the murderous terrorist - who was just a teenager. I wrote about it e.g. here: thetower.org/5815-advocates…
So this illustrates very well how utterly obscene it is that just a few days ago, a San Francisco school handed out an "Ahed Tamimi Award" - because Ahed called for stabbings like the one that killed Hallel Yaffa Ariel
