This sub-series consists of photographic black & white and color images depicting the Sons of Freedom’s various protest and gathering activities from 1927 until 1993. The protests and gatherings were results of various circumstances that the Sons of Freedom found unjustly and worthy of fighting against. Some of the protest were the response to the Canadian government treatment of the Sons, including detention of the children or prison sentences given for arson and public nudity. Other protests were prompted by discontent with leadership issues and divisions within the Doukhobor community as well as by eagerness to demonstrate the Sons’ beliefs.
